Fire protection truck to be replaced

Rocky Mountain Phoenix has won the bid to replace the city’s 20-year-old, fire protection pumper truck.

City council awarded the contract during its regular meeting Tuesday, Aug. 19.

Rocky Mountain Phoenix will supply the truck at the bid price of $514,068 plus applicable taxes.

Funding for the truck will be included in the 2015 budget with the down payment of approximately 10 per cent being approved from the city’s equipment reserve.

The proposed new fire engine will replace Engine 12, which is 20 years old, and requires replacement in order to avoid a 5-15 per cent insurance grade adjustment for all users of the city’s fire protection services.

This engine is the second response engine for city calls and the primary engine for response to the Cariboo Regional District in areas covered by the Fire Protection Agreement.
