Wawa Council Waives Tendering Policy to Approve Fire Department Air Pack Purchase

Wawa Municipal Council has approved plans for the Fire Department to replace its self-contained breathing apparatus units.

Council's passed a resolution approving the purchase of fourteen "air packs" and waiving the municipal tendering policy - Fire Chief Kevin Sabourin had requested the policy be waived, as the firefighters had tested three pieces of equipment and ended up choosing this one.

He'd emphasized to Council last week that it was important the firefighters are comfortable with the equipment, an idea accepted by Council.
