City Council Regular Meeting
The EMS Department currently has a fleet of eleven (11) ambulances, seven (7) of these ambulances are "front-line" or are in-service at any given time which leaves a reserve fleet of four (4) ambulances. A goal is to have four (4) reserve ambulances to allow our fleet department time to "down" each ambulance for preventative and safety checks. As of August 1, mileage for these ambulances range from 280 to over 200,000 miles:
Will receive in FY23
After coordination with the Fleet Department and in-line with our vehicle replacement program, it was decided to purchase this ambulance from Frazer through Sterling McCall Ford (for the chassis). Frazer is a HGAC Buy Purchasing Cooperative program participant, and the ambulances are built here in Texas.
Like our previous six ambulances, this ambulance will be mounted on a Ford F450 chassis.
Due to COVID-19, ambulance manufacturers have lengthened their build times (mainly due to chassis delays) and to have our ambulance built in FY24 we need to have a Letter of Intent (LOI) signed to save a chassis for the build.
Final purchase will be dependent on final approval of the FY24 budget.
Authorizing the City Manager to sign a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Sterling McCall Ford for the intent to purchase one (1) new ambulance for FY24.
The items purchased from Frazer are in support of EMS response to the communities served.
SUMMARY OF RECOMMENDED ACTION
Staff recommends approving the attached Letter of Intent (LOI) authorizing the City Manager to sign a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Sterling McCall Ford for the purchase of one (1) new ambulance for FY24.
This ambulance will be purchased in FY24 contingent on approval of the FY24 budget. The total amount for this ambulance will not exceed $275,000. Staff will return for approval of the funds once the budget is approved.
Staff recommends approval of Resolution No. 22-R-79
