The Dover-Foxcroft Fire Department will upgrade a 1999 pumper truck for a new model in 2022, reports Piscataquis Observer.
Fire department officials began working with three companies to replicate the pumper truck that will be replaced. Allegiance Fire & Rescue will manufacture a Pierce Enforcer 1500 GPM Top Mount Pumper for $702,965.
The fire department has been working on upgrades. A ladder truck was recently delivered and is now being readied for use. The second piece is the pumper truck and the third component is airpacks. The next month the town should learn if its airpack grant is successful. Seventeen airpacks are 29 years old and are not as safety compliant as current models.
