Body

BACKGROUND / RATIONALE:

The Fire Department has identified a need to purchase nine (9) LifePak 15v4 cardiac monitor/defibrillators and one (1) LifePak 15 ACLS, along with necessary cables and attachments, to support the functional needs of staff and for training purposes. The City has standardized to the Life Pack 15 and Stryker Medical is the sole-source provider in the Hospital and Emergency Response Service markets.

 

Staff also identified that nine (9) LP15 v1/v2 devices have reached the end of their useful life and/or will no longer be supported by the manufacturer. This equipment will be deemed surplus, and the equipment’s trade-in value will generate a cost savings to the City in the amount of $58,500 from the overall cost.

 

Staff is recommending the purchase of equipment from Stryker Medical for a total cost of $272,861.
