During a recent meeting, Globe (AZ) City Council authorized the lease/purchase of a wildland pumper for the Globe Fire Department, reports silverbelt.com.
The apparatus is a Rosenbauer Timberwolf Wildland Urban Interface (WUI) Pumper, the report says, and Globe has been pursuing it for two years.
Officials say the apparatus is equipped to handle wildland calls as well as those with the city’s downtown area. The purchase will come via a lease/purchase option with Republic First National, with a proposed price of $525,538 and annual payments of $81,412 over seven years, the report says.
A November delivery is anticipated, with the first annual payment due in or after July 2022. City officials are still working to get funding from the state.
