EMERGENCY EQUIPMENT ORDERS

Fire Departments



  • April 2015 - The Arcadia Fire Department has been approved to refurbish and remount RA105, RA106, and the reserve rescue ambulance. The Fiscal Year 2014-15 Equipment Acquisition Budget has an approved funding of $276,000 for the purchase of one rescue ambulance to replace the existing 2000 Ford reserve ambulance, which has met the age and/or mileage requirement of the City's Vehicle Replacement Program. However, over the years, the other two front line ambulances that were manufactured by Ford in 2009 and 2010 have been undergoing constant repairs with substantial downtime due to the subpar engines that were included in those model years. Ford has acknowledged this issue and continued to repair the ambulance engines under warranty. The circumstances surrounding these Ford engines has become increasingly problematic because the constant work and maintenance to these engines is resulting in significant out-of-service time for the two front line ambulances. Once it was determined that by internally and externally refurbishing and remounting the existing "box" onto new chassis was a viable option operationally and financially, and that the level of our Emergency Medical Services delivery would not suffer, Fire personnel concluded that we could replace all three (3) ambulances with new engines and chassis. The fact that all three of the City's rescue ambulances boxes could be refurbished and remounted on a new chassis with a new engine for only slightly more funds than one fully new one provides the Fire Department the opportunity to remove two Ford engines that the Fire Department knows, and Ford has acknowledged, to be subpar. This will reduce maintenance efforts and increase readiness while saving substantial funds over time. Remounting and refurbishing three (3) rescue ambulances onto new Chevy 4500 diesel chassis will cost $304,200 and will completed by Emergency Vehicle Group Inc.

  • April 2015 - The Vernon Fire Department has been approved to purchase one (1) 2015 Urban Search & Rescue 3-Axle Vehicle in the amount of $799,609.82 from Pierce Manufacturing Inc. The new USAR vehicle will replace the current vehicle that was purchased in 2000 which no longer meets state requirements to carry specific equipment and lumber caches to maintain the departments Heavy Rescue and Task Force 2 certification. They will utilize a $400,000 Homeland Security Grant to fund half of this purchase.

  • April 2015 - The Downey Fire Department has been approved to lease/purchase two (2) 2015 Pierce Quantum Triple Combination Pumper Engines in the amount of $1,281,495.74. The new engines will replace Engine 61 and 62.

  • April 2015 - On November 6, 2014, the Los Angeles Board of Airport Commissioners approved a contract with Rosenbauer America, LLC for the purchase of four Panther ARFF 3000 6x6 airport rescue vehicles at LAX (Phase 1). Funding for these vehicles was authorized in the FY2014 -15 Operating Budget in an amount not to exceed $3,842,303. Staff requests approval from the Board to now purchase an additional two Panther ARFF vehicles from Rosenbauer America, LLC for $1,924,432 (Phase 2) and a total amount of $5,766,735 for the six ARFF vehicles. Prior to the Board awarding four new ARFF vehicles, there were four existing ARFF vehicles at Fire Station 80, which is located on the LAX airfield, and all were between 16 and 17 years old. LAFD and LAWA developed a two-phased plan to replace the aging ARFF fleet. The contract enabled staff to purchase four new ARFF vehicles and retire two of the existing ARFF vehicles, for a total of six available ARFF vehicles (Phase One). Through this action, staff will procure two additional ARFF vehicles (Phase Two). Once all six new ARFF vehicles are in place, LAWA will retire the remaining two aged ARFF vehicles. Having a fleet of six ARFF vehicles provides several critical benefits, including: Improving /increasing LAWA's foam water capacity from 13,500 gallons to 20,000 gallons which is the availability level that subject matter experts consider sufficient for current and future needs at LAX, based on current and projected configurations. Having the ability to quickly supply water and foam to an incident while reducing the impact of removing a vehicle to resupply. Enabling staff to respond to multiple simultaneous incidents. Decreasing response times to the southeast areas of LAX, thereby ensuring compliance with FAA-mandated time standards. Once the six ARFF vehicles are in place, LAFD will assign two additional engineers to LAX to drive and operate the ARFF vehicles.
