06/07/13 118 W, 4 I - + 5 - 2 Morrisville's New Rescue Truck

The town of Morrisville yesterday received this 2013 Spartan/Rescue 1 rescue truck. The chassis is a Spartan MetroStar with a short wheelbase just under 19 feet. Features include a recess-mounted light tower on roof, absorbent material hopper on roof, ground ladder compliment accessed from rear, and bumper tool mount. See more photos and compartment details on the Rescue 1 site. The delivery is part of a multi-year plan to implement a quint concept, with a ladder truck and rescue unit at each of the town's three fire stations. Read more about that in this prior posting. This unit will replace a 1989 Simon-Duplex/KME/Saulsbury rescue truck that was purchased some years ago. Click to enlarge:

Hey Mike, all the thumbnails take you to the same picture … (Case of cut/paste-ism?)

Does anyone know where Morrisville’s old rescue ended up?

Is this rescue a county spec rescue like the Pierce Contender pumpers?
Does each department have some say so on the truck options or equipment?
Seems a little like Stony Hill rescue truck on the outside

Is the county looking into a quint spec program for those departments in need?
