Nashua police, fire departments to get new equipment
On Wednesday, the aldermanic Finance Committee approved funding for several new purchases that will benefit the Nashua Police Department and Nashua Fire Rescue.
According to Mayor Donnalee Lozeau, the new shields — totaling $48,400 — weigh about 19 pounds compared to the shields currently being used by officers that carry a weight of about 50 pounds each.
The committee also authorized spending $40,928 in Homeland Security Grant money to purchase two new bomb suits and one helmet for the police department.
Alderman-at-Large David Deane said the city needs to make sure that local emergency workers have safe and updated gear while voting in support of the purchase from MED-ENG, LLC of New York.
“Nashua Fire Rescue has used the Bullard Thermal Imager Cameras since 2000 with great success, and seeks your approval to purchase three replacement cameras with the same features and latest technology,” according to a memo to the mayor from Robert Gabriel, the city’s purchasing manager.
