FireRescue GPO is a national cooperative purchasing program offering publicly solicited contracts to fire departments nationwide. Our contracts were created through a public RFP process by a Lead Public Agency. Access to our cooperative contracts is free and there are no purchasing obligations.

This is the leading group purchasing organization designed exclusively for first responders.

There are many GPO’s out there and it can be very confusing at times on which way to go.

But this is the only exclusive GPO that is managed, and governed for first responders!

About the Program
The FireRescue-GPO program works to facilitate group purchasing contracts. Members throughout the country have access to pre-

Negotiated supplier contracts that offer major cost savings on capital projects and everyday purchases.

This GPO Program is completely free to members. Vendors pay a fee based on total sales to support program administration.

The FireRescue-GPO program is committed to serving firefighters by:

  • Saving your Fire Department money;
  • Extending Contract benefits for personal use where allowed;
  • Providing creative solutions to sourcing problems;
  • Simplifying the purchasing process, thereby reducing costs;
  • Providing solutions in all areas of fire operation, and
  • Promoting education opportunities.

FireRescue-GPO supports the activities of SWD through a revenue-sharing agreement. A percentage of revenue from purchases made by SWD members through GPO negotiated contracts is returned to state chiefs associations in order to support its activities.

About: “FireRescue GPO is a program of National Purchasing Partners Government Division (NPPGov), a national cooperative purchasing organization. FireRescue GPO provides your fire department and its members access to aggressively priced contracts with vendors who supply goods and services to the fire service. These contracts are often established through a competitively bid public RFP process that allows members to “piggy-back” on the contract – eliminating the need for member departments to complete an RFP process. Other contracts, negotiated for national volume pricing, are made available to individual departments of all sizes. Some contracts are also available to individual firefighters. Membership in the FireRescue GPO is completely free and without any purchasing obligations.
