  • How old is your apparatus?

    How old is your front line apparatus?

    How old is your reserve apparatus?

    Just curious and thought it would be intersting to discuss.

    1984 rescue (replacement on order, due in a month or two), twin 1987 pumpers, 1990 ladder, 1990 rescue-pumper, 1994 pumper, 1997 pumper, 2002 tower ladder, 2003 utility/pickup truck. Every truck is front line, and every one of them is first due for at least one type of call or more. All our trucks are sent out for preventative maintenance at least twice a year, in addition to weekly in-house maintenance and light service. Basically, we take care of the trucks that take care of us, which is why we can stretch the 20 year service life a bit if need be.

      1998 reserve engines, 1996 reserve aerial, 2000 through 2003 front line pumpers and aerials with one 1999 aerial. 6 years for front line pumpers and 10 years for front line aerials and then replace. Rescues run the gammot from 1996 to brand new. Ain't life good?

        At work: 20 front-line engines (all Pierce Quantums), none older than 1998. Reserve fleet is 1991-1997 models, a mixture of Pierce, Grumman, and Ferrara. 5 tower ladders, 1995-2006 models. Reserve truck is a 1990 Pierce. Heavy rescues are 2005 & 2006 Quantums.

        Volunteer house: Front line engine is a 1990 HME/Grumman (specing a new one as we speak) and the reserve is a 1985 Ford C/Pierce.

          *Three front line engines, a 1997, a 2005 and a 2006.
          *One reserve engine, a 1991 (which is a fully enclosed cab, we're away from open jumpseats now).
          *Two buggies, one a 1996 and the other a 2006.
          *Three light rescues, two 2003's, one a 1999.
          *One reserve light rescue, I believe its a 1992.
          *One boat, which is less than ten years old, but I don't know when we bought it.

          We're not a huge departament, and were once not in the best financial shape, so our board has done a great job of making sure we have fantastic apparatus in recent years.
