1984 GMC with 23,122 miles (no hour meter on this unit).
The pump on this apparatus no longer meets the annual testing requirements 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 be a 4WD, quickresponse type apparatus that can be used to respond to EMS calls, brush fire calls, or respond during inclement weather.
