Madawaska Valley Township (Ontario, Canada) Takes Delivery of New $386k Pumper

It was purchased from Carrier Firetrucks.

Madawaska Valley Township (Ontario, Canada) took delivery of a new $386,000 pumper last week that will replace one with more than 30 years of service, reports Yahoo.

The new truck can pump 1,050 gallons of water per minute and has a 30-gallon C02 fire suppressant foam cell on board, according to the report. The real advantage, officials say, is the truck’s high-hat deck with a hose that can shoot 80 feet in the air.

Fire officials expect the apparatus—purchased from Carrier Firetrucks and built by Metal-Fab in New Brunswick—to last as long as its predecessor “Old Faithful” did.
