Title

Consider a resolution authorizing the City Manager to issue a Purchase Order to Rescue Intellitech, Inc. for the purchase of a Solo Rescue Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus Decon Washer and Accessories.

 

Body

The Round Rock Fire Department started using existing self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) for respiratory protection and decontamination uses for COVID-19 calls during March of this year. As we looked to ways to decontaminate our SCBA, we found little resources and compliance with the manufacturer had to be met. Today one company that makes a certified decontamination washing machine for the SCBA. This is due to the intricacies of the SCBA and that it is a life sustaining piece of equipment. When used, we must hand clean our SCBA at a time use of around 30 minutes per unit.  This machine will allow 2 SCBA to be cleaned in 5 minutes.

These machines will not only disinfect our units quicker, it allows us to use existing gear as personal protective equipment (PPE).

 

 

Cost: $81,903.00
