Too Hot to Handle?(click to view full) Barnhart in San Diego, CA won a $8.8 million firm-fixed-price task order (#3) under a previously awarded multiple award construction contract (N62473-08-D-8614) for design and construction of a large fire crash rescue station at Travis Air Force Base, CA. The task order also contains one unexercised option and one planned modification, which if exercised would increase the cumulative value to $10.3 million. Barnhart will perform the work at the base in Fairfield, CA and expects to complete the facility by December 2010. For this contract, 4 proposals were received by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command, Southwest in San Diego.

The crew must be ready to respond to situations in airplanes, homes and other facilities. Aircraft firefighting, structure fires, wildland blazes, petroleum/oil/lubricant situations, hazmat, confined-space rescue and emergency medical situations are all part of the Travis fire crew’s roster of responsibilities.
