Emergency Purchase – Information Only

Emergency Purchase – Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs):

On February 7, 2018, the Human Resources - Risk Management Division, notified the City Manager that all the current AEDs installed around the City had to be pulled due to their possibly dangerous condition as a matter of public health and safety and to mitigate any potential liability.

The 119 current units were old, outdated and well pass their warranty periods. Additionally, there has been no monitoring system in place to make sure the AEDs were functioning properly. The AEDs were housed throughout the City in the following locations:

Government Center – 14 units
City Service Center – 1 unit
Trade Center – 1 unit
Metra – 1 unit
Civic Center – 2 units
Annex – 1 unit
Police Department – 80 units (78 in vehicles)
Public Works – 7 units
Parks and Recreation – 9 units
Bull Creek Golf Course – 1 unit
Oxbow Meadows Golf Course – 1 unit
MCP – 1 unit

Quotes were obtained from the following vendors:

VendorUnit Price Unit OfferedTotal Cost for 119 Units
AED Brands$1,350.00Zoll AED Plus$160.650 + $1,800 shipping cost = $162,450
Grainger$1,515.99Zoll AED Plus$180.402.81
The Instrument House$1,609.00Zoll AED Plus$191,471.00

AED Brands: This is the company from which Risk Management has purchased replacement AEDs, one-at-a-time. They have provided a quote for one of the best AEDs on the market, a model that is by far the best one for civilians to use in an emergency situation. This model also has the longest warranty (seven years), and it comes with a tracking and monitoring system, plus training by the manufacturer’s representative. A monitoring system means that Risk Management will be alerted in the case of a problem with any of the units. In spite of the quality of the product, the AED quote is the lowest: $162,450 for 119 AEDs.

Grainger: Grainger has a contract with the City for the provision various equipment. Their quote is for the same brand, but there is no monitoring system. The total cost would be $180,402.81.

The Instrument House: This firm is on the State Contract. They can provide the same brand of AED, but without the monitoring system or training. The total cost would be $191,471.

The City Manager approved the emergency purchase on February 8, 2018.

Funding is available in the FY18 Budget: Risk Management Fund – Human Resources – Unfunded Claims – Medical Supplies; 0860 – 220 – 3830 – 6795.
