GBPC and MAPC are happy to announce the hiring of Tom Collins, the retired Natick Deputy DPW Director and Fleet Manager, as a Vehicle Specialist.

The Fire Chiefs Association of Massachusetts (FCAM) purchasing program is only one of many ways that MAPC can assist your municipality.
The FCAM program is a convenient, cost-effective way for communities to easily “shop and buy” fire apparatus and manufacturers without having to worry about pricing because MAPC has already negotiated the price in compliance with relevant law. MAPC acts as the purchasing agent for FCAM and issues all bids and contracts in compliance with M.G.L. c. 30B. Click here to learn more.
