AN ALL VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION

1O CAMPBELL ROAD STILLWATER, NY 12170

Dear Potential Fire Apparatus Bidder,

The Stillwater Fire District is requesting bids on the purchase of a new piece of fire apparatus, locally classified as a combination pumper/tanker. We intend to replace a 20 year old unit with a new unit which is very similar to the last engine purchased in 2007 designated as ETA

10-2 a KME/Spartan. Using the attached performance based specifications; we are inviting you to submit a bid to the Board of Fire Commissioners of the Stillwater Fire District. It is the intent of the

Board of Fire Commissioner’s Apparatus Committee to thoroughly examine the proposals to determine the apparatus that is the best value, compliant with the intent of the specifications, while meeting the needs of the Fire District, its firefighters and residents. The performance specification is based on needs determined by the apparatus planning committee and any significant deviation is unacceptable. The apparatus purchasing committee will consider all of the proposals using a comparison matrix with the expectation that they are based on sound engineering, compliance with all applicable standards including but on exclusively NFPA related to type one structural firefighting engines, current safety principles as well as ergonomic design in consideration of the fire fighters utilizing the equipment. If our expectations or needs cannot be fulfilled, we expect the bidder to present clearly priced options based on safe and proven engineering principles or generally accepted standards. Once we review the matrix, consider all of the options and designs, the committee will make a bid award recommendation to the Board in

February of 2016. The Fire District will award the bid in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations which govern fire districts in the State of New York.

Five copies of the bid documents shall be provided and shall address each item in the

District’s specifications. Bid documents shall include a total of five sets of drawings showing all 5 sides of the proposed vehicle. Proposals must be submitted to The Board of Fire Commissioners,

Stillwater Fire District, at Station #1 district office, located at 10 Campbell Road, Stillwater, New

York 12170, or to Fire District Secretary Barbara Comitale care of PO Box 28, Stillwater, New York

12170 between the hours of 9 and Noon daily. Bids shall be received at the Fire District Offices

no later than Noon, January 11 th

, 2016.

Envelopes shall state clearly the following;

the name of the bidding manufacturer

name of manufacturer’s representative plus their email address and phone number

The Fire District’s Secretary shall stamp the date and time received/submitted on the envelope containing the submittal documents. Note that any meetings scheduled to review proposals with manufacturer’s representatives shall be scheduled on weekday evenings after

Stillwater Fire District Pumper/Tanker Bid Specifications

General Provisions, Executive Summary

It is the intent of the Stillwater Fire District to purchase a new custom fire apparatus capable of transporting 1250 gallons of water and pumping 1500 gallons per minute. The custom raised roof cab shall be capable of safely transporting 5 fire fighters and carrying the equipment identified in these specifications. Great consideration was given to ergonomic design intended to limit accidents and injuries to the firefighters using the apparatus. The apparatus shall be designed and built with consideration for the most current safety standards and generally accepted standards applicable to fire apparatus. Any exceptions or deviations from the performance specifications shall be duly noted in a clear manner by function and shall be accompanied by the corresponding cost.

Needs Assessment:

A needs assessment was performed by a stakeholders group comprised of commissioners, chiefs and line officers. The purpose of the needs assessment was to determine the type of fire apparatus that is needed in the Stillwater Fire District for use by the members of the Arvin Hart

Fire Company. The needs assessment and subsequent bid was prompted by the vehicle replacement plan developed by the Fire District Commissioners indicating the need to replace a

20 year old engine/tanker currently in the inventory.

Methodology:

The needs assessment was conducted with a group of members representing line officers and commissioners. A set of criteria was used to arrive at a consensus on future apparatus needs based on facts, needs and assumptions. The group used several factors to determine the best piece of fire apparatus that could be procured at a reasonable cost, which would perform the necessary response functions within the fire district in the most efficient manor.

Assumptions:

o This piece of apparatus will meet the needs of the district for 20 years subsequent to purchase. o The fire district will continue to grow in density. o Any new major (20+ homes) subdivisions will serviced by a public water system. o Some areas of the district will remain less dense and will not be provided with a municipal or private water system according to the Town’s Master Plan. o Commercial and residential growth will occur in the town, where public utilities are provided. o Roads will continue to be improved in the town and unpaved roads will be minimal. o More residential occupancies will be built with longer driveways based on current zoning regulations. o The Apparatus Committee expects that any bid presented by apparatus manufacturers shall meet sound engineering standards and generally accepted safety standards such as but not exclusively NFPA. If sound engineering standards for a system or item can not be achieved, the committee expects to be presented with alternatives meeting sound engineering and generally accepted safety standards. o The entire apparatus will be ergonomically designed to minimize falls, injuries and to allow frequently used equipment to be capable of being removed from the apparatus with minimum staffing. o There will continue to be fewer fire fighters available for response at certain times of the day and night. o Ergonomically designed fire apparatus will require fewer staff to operate most functions and will be more efficient when operational.
