As an IAFC member benefit, IAFC members have automatically been given access to FireRescue GPO for many years. FireRescue GPO was founded by the Western Division in 2002 as a collaborative effort with the IAFC and our U.S. Divisions to bring purchasing solutions to the fire service. This program has grown into a nationally recognized cooperative purchasing program providing access to competitively awarded contracts for equipment, supplies, and services that the fire service relies on.
FireRescue GPO is now part of Sourcewell, one of North America’s largest cooperative purchasing organizations. The IAFC is pleased to continue to support FireRescue GPO through this integration, and Sourcewell is now the sole cooperative purchasing partner of the IAFC.
In continuation of cooperative contract access as an IAFC member benefit, eligible* IAFC members will automatically be given access to Sourcewell and will receive communication from Sourcewell about how to take advantage of the program.
Sourcewell has over 400 competitively awarded contracts, including:
- Body Armor
- Facilities (MRO)
- Fire apparatus
- Firefighting equipment
- Firefighting PPE
- Fleet vehicles and products
- Office supplies
- Public safety video surveillance
- Wireless and technology
- And more…
As an added bonus, when you purchase off a FireRescue GPO/Sourcewell contract, revenue is used to support the IAFC and all of our U.S. Divisions.
