            [post_content] => The city of Great Falls is entering the Houston-Galveston Area Council, which is a cooperative purchasing agreement, to purchase two new fire trucks for Great Falls Fire/Rescue.

GFFR officials drafted bid specifications for two new Rescue Pumper Apparatus.

During the process, GFFR Chief Steve Hester and the fleet manager looked into using H-GAC instead of the traditional process.

The city has used other cooperative purchasing agreements in the past, including State Contract purchasing, City of Billings/Great Falls Interlocal Purchasing Agreement and the U.S. Communities purchasing programs, according to the staff report.

During a City Commission work session about the agreement Tuesday, Hester said this option gives the city the ability to get exactly what it wants at a better price.

“What we write into our specification is what we get,” he said.

The current city fire apparatus have custom chassis, which are costly, Hester said.

In the proposal for new trucks, the department decided to use commercial chassis and build the fire truck around that.

Hester said that option saved enough money the department will be able to buy two trucks instead of one.
