Morristown (TN) Fire Department Purchases 2021 Pierce Rescue Pumper

The department received a good deal on the apparatus by purchasing a demo model.

The Morristown (TN) Fire Department recently took delivery of a 2021 Pierce Saber six-man rescue pumper. The new apparatus will be housed at the department’s Station 1 on S. Jackson St.

The Morristown Fire Truck Committee says it received a good deal on the apparatus by purchasing a demo model being stored in FL, as opposed to going through the WI manufacturer.

“I’m very proud of Lt. Danny Case and all members of the committee and the money they saved the City,” said Fire Chief Clark Taylor. “However, their job is not finished as procurement, stocking, and mounting all equipment is ongoing.”

The truck can hold 1,000 gallons of water, has a 1,500-gpm pump, and carries 1,650 feet of hose. The apparatus also carries extrication tools.

Crews have been training on the new truck for the past month.
