Procurement far from complete

by Jolene Toves

Guam - It appears that the procurement of a new E-911 system for the Guam Fire Department is still in its infancy stages. As we reported GFD has been intending to replace the outdated emergency 911 system for some time now hoping to bring new technology to our island. According to GFD fire fighter 2 Kevin Reily they are revisiting their options. Trying to identify what will best suit GFD's needs. Reily says they have to keep in mind the financial aspect of the purchase, whether it is more beneficial to purchase or lease a system, taking into account the desire to keep the system updated and in line with the newest technology available, while keeping within a reasonable budget that has yet to be set. He adds that no r-f-p has been drafted and is not sure when it will be completed.
