FINANCE, GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Donna Maize, Kansas City Fire Department, testified on this ordinance. NFPA 1500, among other industry standards, recognizes the highly carcinogenic nature of engine exhaust fumes and mandates that departments both prevent exposure of firefighters to exhaust products and prevent contamination of sleeping and living quarters. NFPA echoes NIOSH and OSHA recommendations that exhaust emissions be reduced to the lowest levels attainable. The most efficacious and cost efficient mechanism to accomplish this utilizes direct source capture technology. These systems attach directly to exhaust vents and carry emissions through enclosed tubing and filtration systems before expelling them to the station exterior. Contemporary systems utilize wireless technology to enhance coupling, functioning, and disengagement, improving both efficiency and efficacy of collection and extraction. KCFD installed early generation direct capture systems in all its stations beginning in 2003. These utilized manual pneumatic coupling, now replaced by more automated and precise magnetic coupling technology. Collection and movement of emitted fumes required compressors systems, which have proved increasingly subject to failure and now require replacement (newer technology is not compressor dependent). Accordingly, the cost of operating and maintaining our systems has escalated in recent years , even as its reliability and performance have deteriorated. Systematic review of current equipment and its repair record established that replacement is several years overdue while research on current technology options revealed that we could greatly enhance durability and performancewhile limiting cost requirements by utilizing existing track and rail systems to carry current generation equipment and technology. This proposal requests funding to support acquisition and installation of current generation direct capture exhaust collection systems at all 33 KCFD station locations to accommodate all fleet vehicles (ambulance, pumper, truck, rescue, and specialty apparatus) housed therein, plus vehicle coupling connections for all front line and reserve vehicles to ensure complete capacity to regulate exposure to exhaust borne compounds.

Authorizing the acceptance of a $672,236.44 grant from the United States Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighters Grant COVID-19 - Supplemental (AFG-S) program, and include a City match of $67,223.64, or 10 percent of the Federal contribution bringing the total cost of Federal and Non-federal funding to $739,460.08; estimating revenue in the amount of $672,236.44 in the General Grants Fund; appropriating $672,236.44 to the AFG-S account in the General Grants Fund; appropriating $67,223.64 from the Unappropriated Fund Balance of the Fire Sales Tax Fund for the City's match to the AFG-S grant program; designating requisitioning authority; and recognizing this ordinance as having an accelerated effective date.


FINANCE, GOVERNANCE AND PUBLIC SAFETY COMMITTEE recommends "ADVANCE AND DO PASS, DEBATE"
Donna Maize, Kansas City Fire department, testified on this ordinance. KCFD established three specific health and safety objectives in its COVID Pandemic Plans: (a) Mitigate to all extents possible risk of infection among our front line providers and employees; (b) Prevent exposure and undetected infection among employees to keep providers, their families, and our patients as safe as possible from spread through exposed responders; and (c) Identify, treat, and support any personnel exposed to the virus and/or developing infection. Acquiring and maintaining adequate supplies of appropriate and efficacious PPE is obviously a principal and absolutely essential element in achieving these health and safety objectives. PPE forms the first and most critical line of defense between the responder and a potentially infectious patient; without adequate and effective PPE at the point of patient contact, all subsequent efforts at protection and prevention are materially diminished in efficacy and impact. KCFD acted early and aggressively to ensure that this critical protection would be available when needed.
