Building Apparatus to Do Work

Thursday, April 18
Classroom Session

This class will look at the process, challenges, and options related to the purchase of fire apparatus. Buying fire apparatus is a large investment of money and trust by your community or city. The process must be led by the purchasing committee to ensure that the rig designed will meet your budget and operational needs and also make the mechanics happy who have to fix it. The class will look at the specification process, purchasing requirements, engineering conference, and final delivery--all very important steps to ensure the department gets what it paid for from the chosen manufacturer. Learn options for your apparatus that can make it work better on your fireground and so it is easier to repair and operate.
