The Kirtland (OH) Fire Department recently accepted a proposal from Cincinnati-based Clear Air Concepts for a new vehicle exhaust removal system at its Station 1, reports news-herald.com.
The MagneGrip Diesel Exhaust Extraction System aims to hook right into the exhaust pipes of emergency vehicles and detach at the door’s threshold as they drive out of the station. The cost is $32,131, most of which will be covered with the remainder of a grant for a similar system installed at Station 2 in June.
The Fire Department received an $83,809 Assistance to Firefighters FEMA Grant toward the initial project. The Station 2 furnishing and installation cost came in at $58,989, leaving $29,011 of that grant money in the Capital Improvement Fund. The city is contributing about $4,190.
The installation is expected to take place in June.
