Members of the York Village Fire Department traveled to Pierce in Appleton, Wisconsin to conduct the final inspection on the new Engine 6, a combination tanker and pumper. The process of designing and building this piece of fire apparatus has spanned over one year. Countless man hours have been spent designing a piece of equipment which will serve the citizens of York for the next 25 years. This truck will replace a 1991 Mack/Central States 2500 gallon tanker and a 1983 American LaFrance. This new truck will be able to serve in both roles, and has been designed to maximize efficiency and reliability on the fireground with a minimum of crew. Being a volunteer fire department with unpredictable staffing levels, it was important to the apparatus designers for the apparatus to be able to function with a two person crew. We are very pleased with the product that Pierce provides. This is our fifth Pierce, we currently have three others in front line service and we felt it was important to stick with them for the purposes of standardization, familiarity, ease of maintenance. Training our personnel already familiar with the product makes the process of putting it in service much more streamlined. Thank You to the town of York taxpayers for their continued support, this purchase would not have been possible without you!!
