The Nashville (NC) Fire Department placed a new 2018 Pierce rescue-pumper into service on after a truck housing ceremony. The ceremony consisted of a wet down and a ritual of pushing the truck into the fire station. The ceremony was attended by a large number of fire department members and retired members and their families. Nashville’s mayor and full council members were also in attendance. Chief Chris Joyner thanked the committee that developed the specifications for its hard work that spanned four years. He also thanked the town officials for their support in purchasing the new truck.
The rescue-pumper features a 2018 Enforcer cab and chassis, 1,500-gpm pump, 1,000-gallon tank, and onboard Husky foam system.
