Pierce Manufacturing has started production on the Raleigh Fire Department’s third (!) tiller, as well as two new engines:
Job #30630 is a Pierce Arrow XT tiller, 1500/200/100′. Similar to Ladder 9, which was delivered in 2015. The other tiller is Ladder 4, a 2010 Pierce Arrow XT.
Job #30631-1 and #30631-2 are a pair of Pierce Enforcer pumpers, 1500/500/20. They’ll be similar to Engine 29, also delivered in 2015, but with ground ladders returning to the rear of the truck, and no generator aboard. All scene lighting with be 12-volt LED lights.
You can watch the trucks being built on the Atlantic Emergency Solutions Trucks in Production page. Delivery is expected in late spring. Unsure which companies are getting which trucks.
Here are excerpts of the drawings, which we didn’t have room to feature in the last issue of the Raleigh Fire Department Newsletter. Click to enlarge:
