Rutland City Fire Department adds new firetruck to fleet
RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) — The Rutland City Fire Department has added a new firetruck to its fleet.
The Rutland Herald reports Engine 4 was on display Tuesday night at Giorgetti Park during the city’s National Night Out celebration. It will replace an older truck that had a burnt out engine.
The new firetruck, a 2018 Pierce Sabre fire engine pumper, cost about $400,000. It’s equipped with an onboard tank that carries 1,000 gallons of water and a 1,500 gallon-per-minute pump. The truck has LED scene lighting and a generator as well.
Fire Chief James Larsen says Engine 4 is more versatile. Larsen says the truck will reduce maintenance costs for the department.
The department has three fire engines, a tower ladder truck, a ladder truck and two support vehicles.
