Emergency fire vehicle transmission, radiator replacement approved

Posted

Spending $27,000 for an emergency transmission and radiator removal and replacement on a Queen Creek Fire and Medical Department vehicle was recently approved by the Town Council.

The council on Aug. 5 voted unanimously to approve the replacement with vendor W.W. Williams in a consent agenda with other items. On the dais were Mayor Gail Barney, Vice Mayor Julia Wheatley and Councilmembers Jake Hoffman and Emilena Turley. Meeting by WebEx were Councilmembers Robin Benning, Jeff Brown and Dawn Oliphant.

“These repairs were necessary as the transmission components failed due to the trans-cooler leaking, which is located in the radiator, causing antifreeze to mix with transmission fluid resulting in transmission failure. A complete removal and replacement of the transmission and radiator has to be performed,” Procurement Manager Melissa Bauer said in a memo to the council.

“This apparatus was taken to W.W. Williams for repairs as this vendor is our fleet maintenance provider for repairs that are specific to the Detroit Diesel motors,” she said.
