Cheshire Fire Authority (the Authority) has a requirement for a Maintenance and Service Contract for our current Breathing Air (BA) Compressors. There are currently 18 BA compressors at various Fire Stations throughout the Cheshire area. There is also a requirement within the Contract for the Supply of BA Compressors should it be necessary to replace any during the term of the Contract. The Authority requires that the Contractor will dispose of the BA compressor when it is replaced with a new BA compressor. On expiry of the warranty period the new BA compressor will be added to the Maintenance and Service element of the contract.
