The two Type 1 engines were placed in service on December 2, 2019, following a push-in ceremony. The Pierce pumpers clost slightly less than $1 million for both.
Each rig has a 1,500-gpm pump and 750-gallon tank and compartments to store contaminated PPE after a fire. A third engine has been ordered and the department expects it in fall 2020.
