Gilford NH Attracts One Bid for Apparatus Restoration

Gilford (NH) Fire Chief Steve Carrier said he has gotten one bid for rebuilding the pump on Engine 4 — the pumper-tanker that is out of service — and the bid is very close to the earlier estimates. Lakes Region Fire Apparatus of Tamworth was the only official bidder and their bid is around $32,000.

“This is strictly for the pump,” said Carrier, who said the pump bid appeared in local newspapers and he notified a few shops that he was seeking bids. He said the bid priced the cost of a new pump housing — the old one is cracked — and rebuilding the actual pump.

He said the Department of Public Works is fixing the other things on Engine 4 including a radiator replacement, a new light bar, brakes, tires, suspension and cab mounts.
