Type and Scope of services to be performed:

The Denver Fire Department applied and received a FEMA Fiscal Year 2020 Assistance to Firefighters Grant to purchase Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) equipment for an award amount of $2,146,454.55. The grant requires a minimum 10% City match of $214,645.45 for a total approved budget of $2,361,000.00. The current grant budget period is 9/8/2021 to 9/7/2023.

 

This competitive grant will assist in the procurement of 299 SCBA’s including face masks, harnesses, and oxygen bottles. Denver Fire will be replacing expiring SCBA’s, according to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards.
