2010 PIERCE ARROW

PINELLAS SUNCOAST FIRE & RESCUE
ANNOUNCES THE ARRIVAL OF ITS NEW FIRE ENGINE!
By Marshall Eiss, Fire Inspector

The new engine was an 18-month process. It required the development of specifications and a trip to the Pierce Manufacturing plant in Appleton, Wisconsin, to draw up plans. Finally in October 2009, two steel rails became the start of the new engine leading to its final inspection March 17th!

The new engine’s paint scheme is pewter and red with black reflective striping and has a redesigned department logo. It is capable of pumping up to 1500 gallons of water a minute, carrying 500 gallons of water, and 20 gallons of foam on board for small fires. It features low-draw LED &HID emergency and scene lighting which mean a cost savings since the truck does not need a separate generator as in years past. After looking at many examples from other departments, meeting with several manufacturers who brought their demonstrator units to the station, and attending the annual trade show in Daytona Beach, the committee developed the specifications for the new apparatus. It will be placed in service within the next few weeks after the equipment has to been mounted in the compartments.
