Coming to the Buis Creek Fire Department is this newly completed 2017 Pierce Arrow XT aerial platform, 1500/300/100-feet. The colors are those of Campbell University’s Fighting Camels. Says me, this is most striking piece of fire apparatus in North Carolina. (Sorry Greenville, with your purple pumper. Sorry Carolina, with those keen Carolina blue trucks.)
The truck arrived at Atlantic Emergency Solutions in Fayetteville this week. Keep an eye on Lee Wilson’s Flickr site, as he’s been to AES and taken some pictures. For larger versions of this factory picture, see the Pierce Flickr page.
As noted in the blog archives posting from 2015, the new platform replaces a 1988 Pierce Arrow rear-mounted platform that originally served the town of Cary.
