BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

The New Braunfels Fire Department has identified a need to procure a company to consistently make annual inspections and repairs as needed on their self-contained breathing apparatus equipment used by their staff. These inspections ensure their equipment is in good working condition for the safety of their staff. This service is very specialized and the technicians performing the services are licensed in this field. Additionally, Heat Safety Equipment LLC is also providing the City with a 15% discount off their annual pricing published catalog offered by 3M Scott Safety for repair parts.

 

This contract removes the need to solicit quotes each year for this repetitive service.   

 

The initial contract term will be for three (3) years, with two (2) additional one year renewal options available to the City.

 

The contract is for an amount not to exceed $40,000 over a three (3) year period.

 

ISSUE:

Strategic Priorities 9:  Maintain fiscal stability of City operations.

 

FISCAL IMPACT:

Funds for these services will be paid out of the Fire Department’s FY 2021 operating budget. Therefore, sufficient funds are available.   

 

Recommendation

RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends approval of a contract with Heat Safety Equipment LLC to provide annual inspections and repairs to the New Braunfels Fire Department's Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Equipment.
