The Minden Hills (Ontario, Canada) Fire Department recently took delivery of a new Ford F550, reports mindentimes.ca.
Smaller in size compared to other apparatus, the Pierce-built initial attack apparatus has a 5,000-liter-per-minute pump, 750-liter water tank, 60-liter foam tank, and myriad other customizable features.
Over two years ago council approved the purchase of a new fire apparatus to replace the fleet’s 1995 International. It took 16 months to build, which saw very few non-COVID delays, the report says.
The new unit now gives the department three apparatus with which to respond to calls.
