10. 18162   Recommendation Concerning the Issuance of Fiscal Year 2019/2020 Purchase Order, in Excess of $25,000, for the Public Safety Department - Jason Rogers, Public Safety Department Director

That the Board, for Fiscal Year 2019/2020, approve the issuance of an individual Purchase Order, in excess of $25,000, based upon quotes obtained via Vendor Registry, for the Public Safety Department, as follows:




Vendor/Contractor Amount Contract Number
Ten-8 Fire Equipment
Vendor #: 200935
Fire Hose Tester

Fund 352, LOST III
Cost Center: 330228 Fire Services Capital Project


$25,609.60

N/A
Quotes were obtained via Vendor Registry

[Funding Source: Fund 352, LOST III, Cost Center 330228, Fire Services Capital Project]

A request for quotations for a gas powered fire hose tester was posted on Vendor Registry, to receive quotes for a Fire Hose Tester System. NFPA recommends annual hose testing. This provides an opportunity to determine hose condition and if failure is likely, it will occur during this testing period opposed to during firefighting operations. A catastrophic hose failure during firefighting operations could mean the difference between life and death. The hose line is the firefighter's “lifeline” in more ways than one. The failure during operations could also mean additional damage from fire growth until another hose line can be put in place. Historically, testing has been done by internal staff utilizing the fire apparatus. It has been the experience of staff that immediately following the testing process, we would start to have pump failures and leakage. The purchase of the testing equipment will prevent any unnecessary damage to the pump. The price to replace a pump ranges from $1,100 to $6,500 and $6,500 to $22,000 to replace the transfer case and/or pump shaft. The purchase of the system will reduce the need to subject the fire apparatus to the additional stress of testing the hoses.

This request for quotations was emailed to 70 registrants in Vendor Registry. 18 firms opened and viewed the request for quotations. At closing on April 10, 2020, 3:00 p.m., one quotation had been received. Paul Nobles, Purchasing Manager, was notified of the one response and has advised that we could proceed with the purchase because an attempt was made to include all known vendors.

B. Approve the remaining budget of $387,289, for contingency funding for similar and/or related tasks.

Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) requires an annual lifespan/cell capacity analysis be conducted (see Attachment A). This analysis is based on disposal rate, annual population growth rate, waste density and volume of active cell life remaining. The most recent analysis, conducted December 2019, indicated the end of life for existing Cell 1A to be January 2024. The future rate of increased waste generation will affect this timeline.

Design and construction of Cell 1B will take approximately 24 months. If the Agreement with Thalle Construction Company, Inc., (Thalle) for mining is approved, the design/construction timeline is extended by six months. Barring any unforeseen circumstances, the schedule to complete Cell 1B allows for a nine to 15-month contingency, to have Cell 1B in operation prior to the end of the estimated life span of Cell 1A. To ensure timely construction of Cell 1B, the design Contract is an item on this agenda for the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners (Board) consideration today.
