Logistics receives most goods purchased by the fire district and processes the goods for distribution to facilities throughout the district, including fire stations. A part-time logistics clerk works with the purchasing coordinator to keep supplies in stock and ready for distribution. The purchasing coordinator is responsible for buying the best quality equipment, goods and services, at the best possible prices.
The purchasing coordinator is responsible for the general oversight of the district's equipment and supply function, to include, buying or approving the acquisition of goods and some services needed by the district, issuing equipment and other supplies to district personnel, and maintaining inventory records. The purchasing coordinator may also assist administrative personnel with the oversight and inventory of other district assets as needed.
