|Department Selects Custom Fire Apparatus To Build New Engine/Tanker|
|By 7th District Volunteers|
|March 30, 2023|
At our last monthly business meeting, the membership of the department selected Custom Fire Apparatus based out of Osceola, WI to build our newest apparatus. The new Engine/Tanker will be replacing our 1997 Saulsbury/Simon Duplex. This will be our second unit built by Custom Fire Apparatus. The first was Engine 52 which has been in our fleet since 2014. The Engine/Tanker will be a very similar build to the engine and will have many of the same features. The Engine/Tanker will carry 2000 gallons of water, be built on a Spartan Gladiator cab with a Cummins ISX motor. It will also feature a 1500 gpm Hale Qmax pump and a Custom Fire bolted stainless body, 3,000 gallon portable tank, booster reel, along with many other custom features.
We are excited to get the build started with an anticipated completion of late spring/early summer of 2024. Stay tuned to this site and our social media pages for updates along the way.
