Free Fire Truck Financial Tools

Fire Truck Financial Tools for every stage of a fire truck purchase

Each fire truck purchase has 3 separate financial phases.  Each phase has a central financial question to answer.  You must get a “yes” answer to each question if your want to get a new truck.

Don’t mix up and confuse each phase.  You may think you’re doing one thing when you actually need to answer a different question.  If you answer the wrong question, you can hurt your chances.

Each phase has a different financial objective.  Each phase requires a different financial case study to help your decision makers to agree to the purchase.  Miss one and you may not get the truck.

 The 3 financial phases of buying a fire truck are:

Justifying the purchase:

You must answer the question “Should we buy a truck now?”

And you must provide a financial case study that overcomes the 3 “no-buy” scenarios.

If you don’t, you will not even get the buying process started.

Budgeting the purchase:

You must answer the question “Can we afford the truck we need?”

You must convince the board that you can fit the truck you need in the budget you have.

If you don’t, you can spend lots of time and energy only to get shot down as too expensive.

Financing the purchase:

You must answer the question “What’s the best way to pay for the truck?

This doesn’t mean getting a loan.  You should review your alternatives to paying for the truck (grant, reserves, borrow) and then develop the best financial plan for your department.

You can easily hurt your department later if you make a financial mistake in this phase.
