Replacement of Fire Department Vehicles
Several new public safety vehicles were purchased in 2018 to replace vehicles in both the Fire Department and Police Department fleets. More replacement vehicles have been ordered and are expected to join the fleets in 2019.
To Be Replaced: Fire Rescue Trucks
Replacing 1995 Freightliner (Rescue 9) with 8,489 miles/1,786 hours and a 1986 International (Tactical Unit 9) with 79,175 Miles.
Replacement of Mini-Pumper – Unit 9M
1984 GMC with 23,122 miles (no hour meter on this unit).
The pump on this apparatus no longer meets the annual testing requirement for its rated capacity. The failure of the unit to meet pump test specifications is a combination of issues with both the engine and the pump. The new unit will e a 4WD, quick-response type apparatus that can be used to respond to EMS calls, brush fire calls, or respond during inclement weather.
