Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Assistance to Firefighter Grant (AFG) for the purchase of 171 Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBAs). In order to maintain interoperability in the event of emergencies, and with an aging fleet of SCBA's for the three departments, a memorandum of agreement (MOA) was written to define roles if we were successful in receiving a regional grant for the replacemen t of the SCBA's. It was felt that chances for award were higher for regional applications and the application was successful in receiving a grant award totalling $994,909.09 with a required 10% non-federal match of $99,490.91 for a total project budget of $1,094,400.00. The $99 ,490.91 is divided among the three departments based on the number of air packs each department will receive through the grant. The City of Kenai Fire Department is the grantee and will be respons ible for procurement of the air packs and administration of the grant. As written in the MOA, each department is responsible for providing the 10% grant match funds for their respective number of air packs as listed in the grant. Of the $99,490.91, KFD is responsible for $12 ,218.19, NFD is responsib le for $18,618 .18, and CES is responsible for $68,654.54. A joint selection and evaluation committee w ill be formed to test and evaluated air packs for the overall selection and purchase of these packs. We are anticipating on having an RFP done, testing completed and recommendation for purchase by the end of November, 2019.
