Drawn by Fire: Lowest Bid Conundrum

Firefighters hollering into a cup as communications device

Not all that is marketed as the cost-cutting latest-greatest is the latest-greatest! I can think of numerous tools and tech that ended up in the storage room abyss because it didn’t live up to its billing. Budgets are tight, but there are times that the lowest bid doesn’t equate to highest operational effectiveness or satisfactory quality—costing you more in the long-run.

STAY FIRED UP, and if you always go with the lowest CAN’T MISS bid, remember to keep that string nice and tight!
