Williamsport Bureau of Fire (PA) Looks to Replace Two Fire Apparatus

The Williamsport Bureau of Fire has made a $2 million proposal to replace two fire trucks, reports Williamsport Sun-Gazette.

City Fire Chief Mark Killian presented a plan for a $1.5 million ladder truck and $600,000 for an engine. The City Council’s finance committee reviewed the option of a multi-year lease costing the city $245,000 a year until 2031.

The fire engine and ladder truck are estimated to cost far more than 1 mill of tax generates, which is $860,000.

The vehicles the city is considering replacing include:

• Tower One — a 2011 Pierce Aerial truck purchased in 2010. It remains reliable but requires maintenance.

• Engine One — a 2016 KME engine, which has considerable maintenance issues.

Fire Chief Killian said that the department has struggled to maintain its current fleet.
