Acquire ARFF Vehicle

Acquire ARFF Vehicle 2019
Total Est. Cost:  $1.1M
Start Date:  March 2019
Completion:  October 2020

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.

The Victoria Airport Authority (VAA) team met with the builder in a pre-construction meeting to finalize the details of the final build and contract documents are being finalized. 

These vehicles have a very long lead time - estimated to be between 14 and 16 months.  The  order for this truck has now been finalized.  The builder indicated that the order is now in the queue with a June 2020 production start and October 2020 delivery date.
