06/18/10 90 W, 1 I - + 11 - 13 Pierce Pumpers Delivered to Charleston

The Charleston Fire Department recently received a pair of sharp-looking pumpers, including this one that appears on the Pierce new deliveries site. The 2010 Pierce Arrow XT pumpers are equipped with 1500 GPM Hale pumps and 750 gallon tanks, along with features including 400 HP Cummins engines, 5000 KW Honda generators, through-body ladder storage, three 1.75-inch crosslays, and LED warning packages. They were sold by Sparatan Fire & Emergency Apparatus, which has additional photos and schematics. The trucks are numbered Engine 108 and Engine 115.

Here’s a project idea for you Michael….I’d love to know how far the CFD has come in the past 3 years since our Brothers passed. Has the new Chief cleaned house? How many of the recommendations have been implemented?

Ahhh !!! Silver great questions that hopefully can be answered…..

Perhaps equally compelling is the question: how has it affected and impacted you as a firefighter, and/or your own department?

I just pulled a blow-up of the truck up… look on the side of the ROM doors — you can see the phrase “Everyone Goes Home” on the side of the truck…

I’m wondering if that was always there, or if it’s a new addition to the trucks.

A big departure from tradition in Charleston…....No Booster Line. Was this left off since pulling the booster line on working fires was a the norm? If so, I understand that point but its still nice to have for rubbish/brush, overhaul, and hosing stuff off.

CJS, when I was there for the memorial they had “ISO Class 1” on EVERYTHING. “Everyone Goes Home” is a much better replacement. I didn’t see it on any of their rigs before.

Another change I see is the three digit numbering system.

Silver, I agree… “Everyone Goes Home” is a much better replacement that ISO Class 1, even though that is a high achievement.
