Forward Operating Base (MOB) Davis
Location: Zabul/Uruzgan Provinces Afghanistan
Clients: U.S. Army (FOB Apache) and U.S. Special Operations Command (MOB) Davis
Services: Fire and Emergency Services
Faced with a critical and immediate need for fire and emergency services support, the U.S. Army, U.S. Special Operations Command and NATO needed an agile partner that could rapidly provide comprehensive, turnkey fire and emergency services at FOB Apache and MOB Davis in the Zabul/Uruzgan provinces of Afghanistan in support of International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) operations. Magnifying the challenge, and unique to other fire and emergency services contracts in Afghanistan, our team would be required to operate “outside the wire” in coordination with military personnel and assets where no emergency infrastructure previously existed. From contract award to an operational readiness posture, CGH Global had to be fully compliant in an active warzone while working in close coordination with, and in support of, the U.S. Army and Special Operations community in only 30 days. This 30-day requirement is also unique in that other fire and emergency services contracts in Afghanistan typically allowed 60-90 days, or more, from award to operational readiness postures.
CGH Global was required to provide program management, nationally certified and qualified fire and emergency services front line and leadership personnel, and an approved quality control/quality assurance program. Additionally, CGH Global was responsible for the procurement/acquisition of all required response apparatus, associated equipment and supplies as well as the logistical planning and execution necessary to successfully meet the performance requirements of this contract.
CGH Global sourced apparatus, associated equipment and supplies that met contractual requirements internationally, while simultaneously recruiting top-tier emergency response professionals from our global network. By doing so, CGH Global was able to meet the aggressive requirements and timelines associated with this contract and delivered a fully functioning fire station, an emergency dispatch center, and a nationally certified and qualified leadership and operations workforce that was 100% operational working both inside and outside the wire in 28 days.
For the duration of this contract, CGH Global staffed four fire suppression apparatus and command vehicles with a fully certified and qualified leadership and operations team. CGH Global provided full service fire and emergency services to include structural and Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF) operations, fire prevention, fire service personnel/base population training and emergency medical services for two geographically separated U.S. Army and U.S. Special Operations Command bases.
CGH Global’s support of this contract and SOW was in full compliance with AR420-1, AFI 32-2001, DoD 6055.1M and NFPA 1500 in addition to other applicable standards and site guidance resulting in exemplary CPARS from our customer.
