City of Tuscaloosa Invitation to Bid
Bid No. 6011-072321-1
See attached bid document for details.
Attention bidders: The specifications set forth by Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue are for two (2) identical Type I ambulances with generator powered modules. The main design criterion is that Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue wants each ambulance module to be powered by an under-hood generator, that is, the generator is the primary source of power for all module functions, and the truck chassis alternator/battery system serves as a backup should a generator problem occur. Tuscaloosa Fire Rescue is specifying this type of module because it desires the performance characteristics such a design provides. We realize that some bidders may have limited experience with this type of module, and thus we require a customer list. Neither the generator powered aspect of this specification, nor the specific modular construction are proprietary.
