According to a report from Cape May County Herald, a new fire truck is headed to the Rio Grande (NJ) Volunteer Fire Company (RGVFC) after a discussion on its purchase was part of city officials’ public meeting held on March 18.
The RGVFC has long desired a Pierce Enforcer pumper truck with a compressed air foam system. At the meeting, members stated that the total cost of the truck was $366,872, with an $8,000 reduction because of several changes to the specifications.
The truck being replaced will now be sold off; fire commission members indicated it is worth $145,000. In his report to the commissioners, RGVFC Chief Richard Sweeten said everyone who has seen the new Pierce truck is enthusiastic about it.
