The Ocean View Volunteer Fire Company recently put a new 2021 Pierce Rescue Pumper into service, reports The Press of Atlantic City.
The fire department posted to Facebook, “Ocean View Fire Company has taken delivery and placed in service a 2021 Pierce Enforcer Heavy Duty Rescue Pumper. Designated as Squad 17, the new apparatus features a 730 gallon water tank, 20 gallon foam tank, Compressed Air Foam System and a set of Hurst eDRAULIC rescue tools. This replaces a 2005 Pierce Enforcer Pumper and 2000 EVI Walk in Rescue. Squad 17 will respond from the South Seaville firehouse located on Main Street. We would like to thank the Commissioners and residents of Dennis Township Fire District No. 1 for your continued support!”
The new fire truck will replace two pieces of equipment, a 2005 pumper and a 2001 rescue truck. The new truck carries 730 gallons of water and 20 gallons of a fire-suppressing foam. The truck also will carry hydraulic extraction equipment, which is often used to free people trapped in vehicles after serious wrecks.
