Jonesville (MI) city council recently approved spending $238,000 to purchase a 2021 Fouts 4 Initial Attack mini-pumper, reports hillsdale.net.
The apparatus sits on a F550 chassis and has a 1,500-gallon-per-minute pump with a 285-gallon tank, the report says. It will be paid for with money from the department’s equipment fund.
Officials say the apparatus will primarily be used as a first response unit for all vehicle crashes—and for medical assists and mutual aid calls—and come with extrication tools.
The department says it is purchasing a demo model, which means it could take delivery in as little as two weeks.
Fouts 4’s predecessor will either be sold or scrapped.
