      Pierce FDNY rescue rumors are true

      Well it’s confirmed…. I was searching the internet today and found pictures of the new Rescue 1 being built. Check this link, its for Firematic Supply the long island Pierce dealer who sold the unit. www.firematic.com . Looks pretty good, can’t wait to see how it holds up. There’s nothing about delivery time but it looks close.

        On the Firematic web site they say that they have been working with the FDNY for over 30 years ? How many Pierce vehicles are in service in new york city!...

          I hesitate to answer questions without a name, but we have nothing to hide so here goes?..



          We will be attending the pre bid conference for the 69 pumper order on October 11th.



          The Arrow XT is available in a two door which just happens to be similar to the lance. Not too hard to make a split tilt arrow.



          Pierce no longer offers the AWS option.

            Firematic has been servicing FDNY's hurst tools since Firematic became the area's Hurst tool dealer. Firematic does a lot more than just sell Pierce trucks

            Many people do not realize that Firematic has had a service based working relationship with FDNY for over 30 years. With that in mind that we are proud to have received an order (via GSA - model 289) for a new Pierce Arrow XT HDR for FDNY Rescue 1. We know we would not have been given their opportunity to work with FDNY on this project had we not earned their confidence during our past endeavors.

            Yes, everyone knows Pierce is the leader in the industry, and yes it is easy to highlight the advantages of the Pierce Arrow XT chassis. But in the end, this project is all about providing key solutions to problems as identified by FDNY. This particular rig has over 270 customized options just for FDNY.

            Firematic is a seasoned apparatus service provider. We are one of only five companies in the United States to have achieved platinum battalion sales and service levels. Still providing a rig to FDNY RESCUE 1 is an apparatus dealer's Super Bowl.

            People talk about "war" stories in this industry all the time. Well ... no where are there more stories than FDNY. These stories provide a road map to success. We can utilize the previous experiences of the FDNY technical services group as a bench mark, and provide components that FDNY has specified and feels are best in class.

            Stay tuned ... we will be unveiling the actual finished product here on Firematic.com. At that time we will provide complete details and specifications for those interested.

            These are many rumors floating around regarding this project. If you have a direct question feel free to e-mail [ftp][email protected][/ftp]. We will make sure you get the straight scoop!

                  It will be nice to see other apparatus builders bid on FDNY pumpers, not only Seagrave fire apparatus . They are always very close on there bidding , maybe a $ 10 k difference between Pierce & Seagrave. I am a big fan of the Arrow XT chassis , it is a HD hard wired, all metal dash, no plastic, HD air cond & heating, all work no play chassis!...

                    Hopefully it works out, if for nothing else the competition will force the Mfgrs to sharpen their pencils.

                      Do you know how much money the FDNY is spending on a Seagrave pumper ?Maybe about $ 350,000 each ?

                        in that range, search the city records online and you can see the contract awards for the actual figure I think it's a little less though.
