Emmetsburg IA To Take Delivery of Fire Apparatus

Emmetsburg Fire Department (IA) will take delivery of a 2014 Freightliner Fire Pumper next May 2014. Township Trustees voted to give the 1988 pumper to the Cylinder Fire Department.

Contract for the new pumper was awarded last week at a Emmetsburg City Council meeting. Two bids were received.

The bid was awarded to Toyne Fire, Inc., Breda, for $233,673. The bid came in $13,987 below the budget estimate.

The 2014 truck will pump 1,250 gallons per minute and it has foam capability. The truck carries 1,000 gallons of water.

An additional feature is a top mounted deck gun for large scale buildings. The truck will be set up for city fire fighting.

Emmetsburg City Council approved the purchase of the fire truck chassis. The fire department will take possession in May 2014.
