Resolution to Approve a General Services Agreement with West Shore Fire, Inc. for the Purchase of Self-Contained Breathing Air System Pursuant to ITB-4645 ($48,797)
Memorandum
Your approval is requested for a general services agreement with West Shore Fire, Inc. in the not-to-exceed amount of $48,797 for the purchase of a Self-Contained Breathing Air System. In September 2020, The City issued ITB-4645 for a Self-Contained Breathing Air System to replace the trailer-mounted air compressor that was purchased in 2007. This unit is the only compressor Fire Services has to fill SCBA bottles. Over the last year the aging unit has experienced significant service issues and has, twice, been offline for at least 45 days awaiting parts. The air compressor is a critical piece of equipment for Fire Services.

The City received bids from 5 vendors in response to ITB-4645. West Shore Fire returned the lowest responsible bid of $48,797.

Budget/Fiscal Impact: Funds are currently available in the FY21 Fire Department General Capital Fund.
