My Need
Guidance for our apparatus replacement plan

IAFC Resource Used
I found plans other departments have in place, as well as articles on how much to present a strong argument for maintaining a well-funded apparatus replacement budget. The information helped me prepare a comprehensive report for the city manager and finance director about our apparatus status and future needs.
