Palm Coast FL to Buy Four Fire Apparatus

The Palm Coast Fire Department (FL) has released a replacement schedule, which includes four new trucks over the next eight years.

The new equipment will be bought with cash taken from the city’s fleet maintenance fund. This year a fire engine will be purchased for Fire Station No. 22, which is one of the older stations.

The engine currently in use was put into service in 1976.

The fire trucks are typically kept on the front line for 15 to 20 years. After taken off the front line, they are moved to backup for about another 15 years.

The new fire truck will cost about $350,000. The city has about $380,000 budgeted.

After staff evaluates the proposals, recommendations are submitted to City Council for purchase approval. After the contract is signed to build the new fire truck, it will be complete within six to 12 months.
