Moultrie (GA) Fire Department Receives New Pumper

The department's latest addition is a Sutphen Monarch Heavy-Duty pumper.

According to a report from The Moultrie Observer, the Moultrie (GA) Fire Department (MFD) received a new Sutphen Monarch Heavy-Duty pumper on Friday, March 12. 

The new truck is completely custom-built with a 62-inch extended cab able to fit six people. Established in 1890, Sutphen is one of the United States’ oldest family-owned fire apparatus manufacturers.

The new pumper features a 1,000-gallon water tank, side and backup cameras, and custom ladder storage. MFD Chief Chad Kilgore said the pumper was designed by a local truck committee.

The truck was purchased through the city’s special-purpose local-option sales tax funds a little over a year ago. After the MFD decided on the truck’s features, companies sent in bid to acquire the contract, eventually awarding it to Sutphen.
