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 hear a “yes” at each phase to get a new truck.

It’s easy to mix up the phases.  If so, you’re answering the wrong question with the wrong information.

Each phase has a different ultimate financial question.  Each phase requires a unique case study to help your decision makers agree with the purchase.  Miss one and you don’t 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.
