    Bought our rescue off of it in 2002, department bought a whole pile more after that. Most everyone around here uses HGAC for apparatus. Basic specs are there, can option out to 25% of the cost of the truck without having to go out for bid. So it shortens the process if the truck is needed sooner than later. Since it's a prebid system it qualifies for AFG purchases just like state contracts do.

    We also use HGAC extensively for apparatus. Have always been pleased. For future reference, there is a similar organization named Buy Board that you may want to look at.
