We have just recieved a 2008 Pierce International Pumper/Tanker with a 500 GPM pump and a 2200 Gal water tank. We got this truck through a FEMA grant it replaced a 1975 Ford/Bean Pumper that was currently out-of-service due to Engine failure.
We have als0 recieved a grant just a month ago for a 2009 GMC 5500 4X4 4-door quick attack truck that will replace a 1976 Chevy half ton that has major chassis damage from all the weight it has carried through the years. We will hopefully have this truck by early May just in time for grass fire session.
Would like to put a thanks out to our Asst. Chief Dave Belden for writing these two grants as well as many others and getting us all this wonderful much needed equipment.
Congrats RCFD!! It was not long ago, only 2005 that I stripped out an in-service 1964 Ford Fire Equipment pumper for a rural dept. This dept. received a 1999 Pierce pumper and an older ambulance from another neighboring community.
