New Equipment Options Made Possible for Fire Service

Nine vendors awarded fire equipment contracts through Sourcewell

Sourcewell recently awarded contracts for “Firefighting Apparatus, with Related Equipment, Accessories, and Supplies” through solicitation #022818. Sourcewell contracts are solicited across North America and competitively awarded on behalf of Sourcewell current and potential government and education member agencies.

Public entities’ access to firefighting equipment has increased exponentially with the addition of nine vendors in the Firefighting Apparatus, Related Equipment, Accessories, and Supplies category to an arsenal of existing options at Sourcewell.

Sourcewell (formerly NJPA), a national cooperative purchasing organization, awarded the contracts following a nationwide competitive solicitation process. Equipment offered through the category includes custom fire chassis, demo/stock units, aerial units, pumpers, rescue vehicles, tankers, aircraft rescue firefighting equipment, custom emergency vehicles, customizable apparatus, and more.

“We're proud to offer our members solutions through these high-caliber fire apparatus manufacturers," said Kelly McAllister, Sourcewell contract administration supervisor. "Through these contracts, our members can find fire apparatus for everything from tenders to aerials, and even wildland and ARFFs. These contracts are designed to meet the needs of any fire department across the US and Canada, whether these agencies are from cities, counties, special districts, airports, states, or provinces."

Purchasing off a cooperative contract streamlines the procurement process for public entities resulting in a savings of time and money, McAllister added.

Effective April 16, 2018, the contracts are available to all Sourcewell members throughout the United States and Canada.
