What's in the queue for new apparatus, now that the county-wide stuff has wrapped up? What we know: .

Apex - E-One Cyclone II 95-foot rear-mount platform ladder, due mid-April.

Raleigh - Four Pierce Dash pumpers, due spring/summer. Expected to be placed in service at some of the Beltline stations.

Raleigh - One Pierce Dash 105-foot rear-mount ladder, due spring/summer. May replace T24, with T24 replacing T16, and T16 replacing T26.

Raleigh - One International (?) / Hackney, tractor-drawn haz-mat rig, due this spring (?). To replace HM20, with HM20 replacing Mini 9 and trailer serving as temporary HM support unit.

Morrisville - Two KME pumpers, due in a couple weeks.

Wake Forest - Pierce mid-mount platform, due this year.

What else?

They will still be a next round of pumpers, tankers for the county.

If the Raleigh pumpers are like the last ones, they will be on Enforcer chassis (vs Dash).

T-16 will be replaced. T-26 will get old T-16.

Harkey is correct, the four Raleigh pumpers will be Pierce Enforcers, spec’ed the same as the last two.

And, yes, there will be another round of pumpers and tankers for the county. Same bid arrangement, I wonder?

Wendell also has an aerial coming, Pierce 75’ rear-mount that’ll look like Raleigh’s Truck 11. It’s due this year.

Look for Cary FD to replace current Truck 7(Seagrave/Marion) in the next year with a similar type service truck

Swift Creek FD to get a county-spec tanker in the coming weeks as well.

The next round of County Engines/Tankers/Brush Trucks in the works for who gets what currently ongoing.

Who is paying for Morrisville’s pumpers?
JD - 02/21/06 - 21:23

Town of Morrisville? Someone else can advise if municipalities are entitled to a piece of the County fire tax pie, with regard to apparatus purchases.
