The Buies Creek Fire Department has ordered an black-over-orange Pierce Arrow XT (though the drawing shows a Velocity) aerial platform, notes this Facebook posting from Atlantic Emergency Solutions. The truck will equipped with a 1500 GPM pump, 300 gallon water tank, and 100-foot platform. The colors are those of the Campbell University Fighting Camels. This is the first truck in the department’s history to be painted in the University’s colors. Very cool and you know the next question. What other orange fire engines are operating in the Carolinas? It’ll replace a 1987 Pierce Arrow rear-mount platform, formerly operated by the town of Cary.
