I emailed the following message to Julian, but I figured that I'd send it to
the list to answer any questions that you might have.

(Please contact me off list with questions, so we dont go too far off topic)

> Actually, thats one of the problems that were hitting, around here where
> they are needed, they cant be found as much, TAMSAR has 4 of the original 5
> bars that were bought brand new in 1979, and we finally just had to replace
> them last week with brand new ones, costing aobut $2000 per vehicle.
> Second, The times that they are released, or sold as surplus, theya re in
> such bad condition, that they cant be re-used, and are just stripped for the
> case, lens, or the bulbs.
> The project that were working on has two basic goals:
> 1. Get this equipment out of civilian hands, and put it to the correct use
> 2. Give it to the departments taht need it badly but cannot afford new ones
> with their small budgets.
> An example that I'm going to use on the official news realease, is the
> Canutillo VFD, which i volunteer for on weekends, have new equipment from
> the county for the 3 new trucks, but they have 2 older trucks that are still
> used, that need lights, either because the old ones are unserviceable, or
> missing, and with an annual operating budget of $6800 a year, cannot afford
> even spending $150 on a used one from a suppler like Galls or Central Public
> Saftey.
> At a point in the near future, I will put thisinformation on the Official
> TAMSAR site at http://tamsar.el-paso.tx.us
> (note the US domain, and not a .com of .org)
> Thanks for your help,
