ATTENTION ALL CALIFORNIA FIRE DEPARTMENTS!
TYPE 3 FIRE ENGINES TAG-ON OPPORTUNITY AVAILABLE WITH CAL FIRE CONTRACT
Boise Mobile Equipment (BME) has been awarded roughly $10 million to produce over thirty Type 3 Wildland apparatus for the Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, better known as CAL FIRE. “Tag-on” opportunities are available to California fire departments, which allow them to save time, money and effort in purchasing fire equipment and machinery. Many other departments have already tagged on.
“Tagging-on” is a common method used by fire departments during the purchasing process. Rather than undergo the traditional bidding process, which can often take up to a year, fire departments are able to “tag-on” to another department’s purchase order, allowing them to add their own purchases to the existing order. By tagging on to BME’s purchase order, fire departments are able to get their fire apparatus in a fast, efficient and cost-effective way.
To tag on, local departments may submit their own purchase order and send it to BME in any of the following ways:
Mail: Boise Mobile Equipment, 5656 W Morris Hill Road, Boise, ID 83706
Fax: (208) 344-0395
State departments may tag-on using one of the following methods:
