The Plymouth (MA) Fire Department (PFD) recently held a wet-down ceremony for its new truck—Engine 4, a 2021 E-One Cyclone 2—at Station 4, 533 Bourne Rd.
Chief Bradley and members of the PFD were joined by Assistant Town Manager Marlene McCollem, Select Board Chairman Ken Travares, and Department Chaplain Rev. Gary Blume to see Engine 4 officially put into service.
As part of the ceremony, Chaplain Rev. Gary Blume blessed the engine and firefighters then placed their hands on Engine 4. Funding for the apparatus was approved at the 2019 Town Meeting, and it replaces the department’s 2004 Pierce Dash pumper.
The engine also features a 1,500-gallon-per-minute pump, a 1,000-gallon water tank—its predecessor only held 750 gallons—a built-in 10-kilowatt hydraulic generator and light tower, and rescue tools including the Jaws of Life.
Engine 4 was built by E-One at its Ocala Florida factory.
