Lancaster OH Council Could Buy Fire Apparatus

The Lancaster Fire Department (OH) might be getting a new pumper truck in 2013.

The truck, a 2013 Rosenbauer fire engine pumper truck, is expected to cost $447,337 and would be financed over a period not to exceed 15 years.

Fire Chief Dave Ward said the truck is identical to one the department bought in 2011. He said the fire impact fee account has $203,209 in it; an apartment complex being built on Ety Road that should be completed by October 2013 will bring in an estimated $553,520 in fees.

If the purchase is approved by the council, once the new engine is delivered it would be stationed at Engine House 3 on Main Street. The 1994 Sutphen Mini-tower engine would be relocated to Engine House 1 on Chestnut Street to be used as a back up apparatus. The new engine will replace a 1991 Sutphen fire engine, which will be put up for sale.
