Replacement of Fire Rescue Apparatus
Proposed Project Year: 2019
Estimated Cost: $1,000,000
This project will replace two existing apparatus which are reaching the end of their usefulness with one new apparatus. The new apparatus will be used to transport personnel, technical rescue equipment, and a breathing air compressor with breathing air storage cylinders to fire rescue incidents within the City or as needed in other jurisdictions. This apparatus will increase the department’s technical rescue capabilities to address the demand/potential demand for these services which have grown over the last 5 years.
Other Notes: Replacing 1995 Freightliner (Rescue 9) with 8,489 miles/1,786 hours and a 1986 International (Tactical Unit 9) with 79,175 Miles.
