Staff recommends approval of purchase requisition #36798 to Ten-8-Fire Equipment, Inc. for four sets of rescue extrication tools for $112,000.
The Fire Department received an $84,000 grant from the Florida Department of Health to purchase four (4) sets of rescue extrication tools. These tools will be used by the department for rescue of victims from vehicles and other situations that may require powered extrication tools. The City’s contribution will come from Impact Fees.
This is a sole source purchase of Holmatro Rescue Equipment from Ten-8-Fire Equipment, Inc. of Bradenton, Florida. Holmatro brand equipment uses a patented single coaxial hose system that has many benefits including eliminating equipment failure due to hose kinks. The purchase of this equipment will supplement the current equipment and take advantage of fire personnel training already received. The Purchasing Division has a letter on file from Holmatro Rescue Equipment granting sole distributorship in the State of Florida to Ten-8-Fire Equipment, Inc.
1. Approve the purchase of $112,000; or
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
City has received
grant money of
$84,000. The City’s matching portion of $28,000 has been
transferred from Impact Fees already collected.
