CIP - Fire and Rescue

CIP - Fire and Rescue

The Fire and Rescue portion of the proposed CIP totals $1,631,000 in FY2022. More information about the first year requests can be found below. Refer to the CIP book for FY2022-27 for a complete list of proposed projects for fiscal years 2023 through 2027.

Command/Staff Vehicle Replacement

The life expectancy of a command staff vehicle is 15 years. Three recent vehicles were acquired from the Police Department surplus. Fleet industry-standard hour/mileage formulas put these vehicles above 300,000 miles each. Replacing a surplus vehicle every other year starting in 2022 will allow us to cycle these vehicles into a more standard 12-15 year rotation in the future.

Cost: $51,000

Pumper/Quint Replacement

This project would replace the Fire Department's frontline 2011 pumper that is closing in on 130,000 miles. The 2011 pumper has an expected useful life 20 years and would be kept as a backup vehicle or moved back to frontline service if community growth necessitates another fire station in its service life.

Cost: $750,000

Station Capacity Improvements

This project would add a 1,875 square-foot bay at the South End Fire Station, upgrade fire and sprinkler systems, and refresh the interior.

Cost: $830,000
