A) Roll Call: Present: Biggs, Birney, Gravelle, Kattuah; Absent: Kinkle (Excused)
Item 2) Public Communications: None
Item 3) Chief’s Report—by Captain Steve Robinson
A) Viewed and discussed proposed replacement engine for E62. Demo model vs. newly constructed: price would be the same, but new construction will take 260-290 days from contract date and require two trips to Michigan, while the demo model would be ready in approximately 15 days. The demo model has 6,000 highway miles, no cold starts, no Code 3 responses. The demo model would have a standard one year warranty from date of contract for most systems (warranty service is performed at Valley Fire in West Sacramento—District would need to register vehicle with them for warranty service). Bob from HME-Ahrens Fox explained the demo model is the last Model 18 available for approximately 12 months (for new build). The new models will be more expensive due to new EPA requirements; plus HME will have a four percent (4%) Prince increase January 1, 2014. They do not offer any discount for paying cash—terms are COD at time of delivery. They would also require a document on the District’s letterhead with signatures addressed to Sacramento Registration Service authorizing HME to register the new Model 18 vehicle on the District’s behalf—as license and registration is changed upon delivery. Bob recommended that all potential drivers of this vehicle have training due to the short turn base. Captain Robinson performed a test drive of the vehicle and reported it drives and handles well and has good acceleration.
