12/08/15 187 W, 2 I - + 24 - 12 Clayton's New Rescue 1

The Clayton Fire Department yesterday took delivery of their new Rescue 1, a 2015 Pierce Enforcer heavy rescue. As noted in this Facebook announcement, they expect the truck to be in service within the next week or two. The truck will also serve as a Service [Ladder] Company for the NCDOI Response Rating System. It replaces a 1997 Simon-Duplex-Salisbuy heavy rescue, ex-Morrisville. Clayton acquired that truck from Morrisville in the early 2000s.Below is Lee Wilson's photos of the new truck, as well as the current rescue when it served in Morrisville.

 1There were two rescues swapped between Clayton and Morrisville in the early 2000s. At the same time they sold their heavy rescue, MFD acquired a 2000 Ford F-550 light rescue from Clayton Area Rescue Squad. (Presumably with CARS moving to EMS-only services? That was happening locally, with area "rescue squads" become EMS-only agencies. Such as Cary, Six Forks, etc.) Morrisville then purchased a 1989 Simon-Duplex/KME/Saulsbury from somewhere "up North." (The small rescue is still in service, and the big rescue was replaced by MFD in 2013.)

nice new rig for clayton.

Morrisville’s 1989 Simon-Duplex/Saulsbury/KME was originally from Atlantic H&L Co. 1 in Port Washington,NY. It is now serving Midland VFD in Cabarrus County,NC.
