Tusculum VFD (TN) Puts Fire Apparatus Into Service

A 2005-model fire truck now in service with the Tusculum Volunteer Fire Department came from a fire department in Texas and was purchased with funds primarily donated by the public, reports The Greeneville Sun.

The truck is a rescue engine-pumper with a 1,250-gallon-per-minute capacity. It’s capable of fighting fires using a water tank, a hydrant, or sources like ponds and creeks. It can hold 500 gallons of water and also carries 30 gallons of a foam concentrate solution in an onboard tank for spill containment of small chemical leaks like gasoline or diesel fuel.
