Santa Monica (CA) Council Considers Fire Apparatus Purchase

Santa Monica City Council will consider spending $964,215, mostly on a new fire truck.

They’ll likely pay $720,000 on the new rescue vehicle for the Fire Department. This truck will replace one that’s been in operation since 1994 and “is reaching the end of its useful life,” city officials said.

The truck will have a high pressure, high capacity air compressor to fill fire fighter air bottles. It also supplies air to confined spaces where fire is being fought.

It will have an aluminum body, which makes it more durable in the long run, city officials said. City Hall sent out requests for proposals twice but only received one bid, from the Emergency Vehicle Group, Inc., which will likely get the contract.
