  • State Fire Apparatus Contracts

    Can anyone provide information via a link to a website about states that bid out generic specs for fire trucks, then allow departments to purchase from that contract? I know NY used to do that, and I believe Penn., but I am not sure if they still do.

    I know Florida has something simlar to what you are looking for. But I am not sure the link to the website. Try searching the web for Florida Government.

      I know Ohio has a "State Bid Engine". I can't say for sure, but I believe it came fully equipped , on a commercial chassis, for somewhere around $170,000. I will see if I can find a link for it.

        The Ohio contract truck is under the state Dept of Commerce, then the State Fire Marshal. Good luck.

          OK, it looks like the program I was talking about may have expired at the end of 2002, but I'm not sure if they have a new one or what. Here is a link to a page about it, which has another link to look at some more options and such.

            state bid

            you can state bid on squads (ambulance) also, my dept. just did that in the spring, and we are taking delivery next month. the price tag on the EMS vehicle was $140,000.00, and you can tweak it to some extent, we added an inside compartment and a few other things, as far as we know the state bid thing is going to be a continuing thing

              Contract Truck

              Louisiana has contract trucks. My combo department just received a new Ferrera pumper/tanker last month which was a contract truck. You may not be able to get exactly what you want but the price is good and there a re a few options to help customise your order some.

                  Mississippi

                  I believe Mississippi has, or used to have this process. The state was giving grants to Departments to upgrade equipment, on the condition they bought the chosen engine. They got a better price, because they were buying large numbers.

                    There is something similar to that here in California
                    The Office of Emergency services as these ugly yellow Type 1 Fire engine

                    These engine's are given to local FD's at no cost
                    Well in return for the engine the department agrees to man the engine with a crew of 3-4 and send it anywhere within California when needed
