Williamsburg, IA—Firefighters from the Williamsburg Fire Department welcomed the arrival of their new Toyne pumper-tanker. This is the department’s fourth Toyne Tailored Apparatus. It will be taking the place of an older Toyne Pumper that has helped protect their fire district for more than two decades.
The pumper tanker is mounted on a Spartan Metro Star LFD 10-inch-raised-roof chassis. Constructed with bolted painted stainless steel, the apparatus body is designed to withstand the elements. A Cummins ISL 450-hp engine and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission power the rig. It features a top-mount 1,500-gpm Hale Qmax pump, a 1,500-gallon UPF watertank, an Akron Hi Riser Monitor, and an onboard FoamPro 2001 class A foam system and 25-gallon foam cell.
“Working with Dale and the Toyne team has been a great experience,” said Chief Travis Heitman, Williamsburg Fire Department. “From working through the spec design phase to the apparatus build, everything went with relative ease! Also, being punctual on the build and having the engine early benefits the Williamsburg Fire District.”
With the desire to serve, the courage to act, and the ability to perform; volunteer firefighters of the Williamsburg Fire Department have been vigilantly severing their community of 3,100 for over 125 years. The department’s 31 volunteers not only protect life and property in Williamsburg but also work to provide mutual aid to eight other area fire departments. These firefighters respond to over 80 calls per year.
