Twelve suppliers named to firefighting equipment categories

Firefighters can breathe a little easier with the addition of two new categories of fire service contracts, including personal protective equipment, at Sourcewell.

Twelve suppliers were awarded between the Firefighting PPE and Firefighting Equipment and Rescue Tools categories at Sourcewell.

“The fire service has a unique need for equipment that impacts the life-safety of the firefighter and the public they serve,” noted Sourcewell Supplier Development Administrator Darin Narlock. “Being able to easily procure essential equipment that maintains continuity for training and service standards is key to the public safety community. Utilizing Sourcewell cooperative contracts is a more efficient, and cost-effective, way to meet this need.”

These new Sourcewell contracts in the area of firefighting include turnout gear, helmets, boots, gloves, self-contained breathing apparatus and accessories, fire hose, nozzles, extrication tools, and thermal imagers.

Revenue generated through the use of these contracts is shared with fire chiefs associations across the country, including the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), its divisions, and state fire chiefs associations.

“We are excited to add such a wide range of suppliers to our ever-growing portfolio of fire and rescue tools, equipment and services,” Narlock added. “These new contracts represent both manufacturers and distributors who provide a wide range of products that the fire service uses every day.”
