Eatontown NJ Purchases Fire Apparatus

The Eatontown Council (NJ) approved a resolution awarding a $834,537 bid for a new fire truck for the Eatontown Fire Department.

The price for the truck includes the trade-in value of two older trucks that were valued at $1,000 and $10,000. The fire department is trading in its 1989 Pierce pumper truck and its 1985 Pierce pumper truck to help offset the cost of the new truck.

The bid from Pierce was the sole bid the borough received. The new truck will be a quintuple combination pumper or quint-style apparatus that doubles as an engine and ladder truck.

The fire department’s fleet of trucks currently consists of three fire engines, with the third purchased in 1996 and a ladder truck purchased in 2006.
