Acquire ARFF Vehicle

Acquire ARFF Vehicle 2019
Total Est. Cost:  $1.1M
Start Date:  March 2019
Completion:  June 2021

This project will acquire a medium sized Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) vehicle to provide a second front line vehicle when one of the large ARFF vehicles is out of service.

Drafting of specifications and the Request for Proposal (RFP) documents is complete.  The RFP was sent to the top three suppliers in North America.  The RFP closed May 31, 2019 and Rosenbauer America was the successful proponent.

These vehicles have a very long lead time.  The vendor has revised the production schedule forecast:  December 2020 production start with late Quarter (1) 2021 or early Quarter (2)  delivery date.  Delay in production start and completion due to supply chain issues directly related to COVID-19, including suppliers as well as manufacturing staff.   

Operational testing for the new fluorine-free foam is awaiting completion and the truck is anticipated to be in service in June.
