PURPOSE:

This request is pursuant to policy requiring City Council approval of all professional services contracts exceeding $100,000.  This contract enables supplemental fire protection and emergency services to annexed area of the city that are not currently within the city’s urban standard of emergency response coverage.

 

BACKGROUND:

For many years, Greensboro City Government has contracted with Pinecroft-Sedgefield Fire District (PSFD) to provide supplemental fire protection and emergency service response to identified areas of the City of Greensboro where the partnership improves service delivery to people in need and makes economic sense.

 

The Greensboro Fire Department (GFD) has established a baseline objective to place a first-due fire unit on all moderate fire responses within six minutes and twenty seconds from the time the emergency call is received.  A contract with PSFD enables GFD to meet this objective in the affected response areas.

 

This partnership method of contracting is appropriate where areas have been annexed that need supplemental fire protection services and a responsible contracting fire department is available.

 

BUDGET IMPACT:

The total contract amount of $523,924 for the period of July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2025 is payable as follows:

 

July 1, 2020 through June 30, 2025 annually $523,924 to be paid in two equal installments paid by the 31st of August and by the 31st of January.

 

RECOMMENDATION / ACTION REQUESTED:

It is requested and recommended that the City Council pass the resolution authorizing a contract with PSFD to provide supplemental fire protection for a sixty (60) month period.
