Cherry Point’s New Rescue Pumper

Lee Wilson went to the beach last week, and shot this sweet Rosenbauer rescue pumper at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point in Havelock.

Was just delivered on August 24. It’s a 2017 Rosenbauer Commander, 1500/500 with 20 gallons Class A foam and 30 gallons Class B foam. 

See more pics from Lee, in his album of trip photos. What’s the rest of their fleet comprised of, and how many stations do they have? (Three structural, one ARFF.)

Maybe readers can advise.

Update, September 12 – From reader Trav May via Facebook comment, from the base web site:

“Operations Division – The Operations division is led by two Assistant Chiefs and six Captains. This division consists of all personnel assigned to suppression and associated services. 39 operations personnel are assigned to 7 work groups working a 48 hour on/72 hour off schedule. Each of the workgroups is assigned 6 to 7 personnel manning three fire stations. Minimally two 1250 GPM pumpers and one 1750 pPM 75-ft Quint are each staffed with four personnel daily.”
