Harris Places Public Safety Radios on the FireRescue Group Purchasing Organization
Published: 4/23/2012

The Western Fire Chiefs Association would like to announce that in partnership with Fire Rescue Group Purchasing Organization (FireRescue-GPO), a competitively bid contract for Radio Equipment has been awarded to Harris Corporation, Midland, Tessco and Tait. In response to requests by the fire service, Fire Rescue GPO sought the addition of radio communication equipment to its discount portfolio. Crucial to the initiative is that radio offerings are in compliance with the January 2013 deadline for the federal requirement for narrow banding.


Fire Rescue-GPO is the sole purchasing organization for the nation’s fire industry committed to providing discounted competitively bid and negotiated contract options for its members through volume purchasing. Founded in 2001 by the Western Fire Chiefs Association, Fire Rescue GPO now counts over 3,500 fire departments as its members and is partnered with the IAFC and all seven Divisions, sharing a portion of the revenue with the fire service.
