Discussing Fayetteville's new rescue caused me to think, I wonder what their entire fleet looks like? Is anyone willing to post a full Fayetteville Fire Department apparatus roster? Ditto for the other larger departments around North Carolina? I'd love to see and compare apparatus and units from the state's top twenty municipalities (for starters): Asheville, Burlington, Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Concord, Durham, Fayetteville, Gastonia, Goldsboro, Greensboro, Greenville, Hickory, High Point, Jacksonville, Raleigh, Rocky Mount, Wilmington, Wilson, and Winston-Salem. Not sure how to post a list? Just mail it to Mike, and I'll post.

Here's Raleigh's full fleet...

What happened to Cary’s old seagrave truck that ran as a truck company up until not long ago?
????? - 08/30/09 - 11:06

Edit the USAR-80# to be F-550’s not F-350’s.

The old Seagrave/Marion truck was replaced last year by the 2008 Pierce Velocity Rescue/Truck/Air Unit. It was sold soon after it was taken out of service.

Mike,
I’m not 100% sure on Charlotte’s reserve apparatus because they have gotten rid of so many trucks recently. Most if not all of the Spartan/Quality engines are gone as well as the 1993 IHC/Central States tankers. I’m guessing the ALF/GS engines that formerly served E1,E4,E15,E18,and E27 are still around since these units just received new trucks. On the reserve ladder side, the only 2 trucks I’ve seen lately are L80-1998 Spartan/Quality/AI 2000/400/105’ (Ex-L13) and L84-1994 Spartan/Quality/AI 2000/300/75’ (Ex-L24). There are probably a few more reserve ladders, I’ve just not seen them. Reserve rescues are Squad 88 and 89, twin 1988 Pierce Lance heavy rescues. There is also a mystery truck that ended up who knows where. Tanker 37 (Ex-T12) used to have a 2003 IHC 4400/Central States tanker but I don’t know if it was sold or kept as a reserve when T37 got a new rig. Anyone know the whereabouts of this truck?

From my understanding the old T37 is now a foam tanker. I don’t know where it is stationed at.
[bcfd424] - 08/31/09 - 09:07

Also on order for Cary FD are two 2009 Pierce Velocity Pumpers, they are due mid December and will replace two of the current pumpers, yet to be determined. The oldest two pumpers (E-3 and E-7, twin 1997 Pierce Lances) will then go into reserve. An additional Pierce Velocity pumper will be ordered after Jan. 1 and will most likely be placed in service replacing 2000 KME. The KME will most likely then become E-8 upon that company being placed in service in the future.

Charlotte FD Additions/Corrections

Ex T-37 (nee T-12) 2003 IHC 4400/Central States 1250/1000/300F is now FOAM 1, 1250/0/1300F quartered at Sta. 25.

There are still a few Spartan/Quality Engines in the reserve fleet (I don’t know how many or the heritage). I think all of the LaFrances that got replaced with Spartan/Smeal’s were put in the reserve fleet. Ex L-29 and possibly ex L-2 (Spartan/Quality/AI 2000/400/30F/105’)are also in the reserve fleet.

There are four Spartan/Smeal engines on order, as well as 2 Spartan/SVI Heavy Rescue’s, and a possibility of 1-2 Spartan/Smeal Ladders.

Also a correction, L29 is a 2005, put in service in Oct. 2005.

Luke - 09/03/09 - 09:25

Luke, I know station 40 is under construction. Where is E40 running out of right now? Also, I understand BC8 is sort of a roving chief right now. When will an 8th battalion be established and where will it be?

Andrew –

E40 is currently running out of Station 34. BC08 is assigned to the airport (Station 17) and currently runs all box assignments on airport property and areas around the airport.

Per Chief Hannan, L40 will be the 60th fire company in the city. It will go in July 2010 (if I’m not mistaken). When we get 64 fire companies we will be able to establish a true 8th Battalion. Where it will be… I have no clue. We have 3 stations either in the plans or under construction and Chief Hannan said there are talks of 3 more within the next several years. Also, we’ll need several “in fill” ladder companies (28, 39, and possibly a west side station), so I’d guess we’d get up to 64 fire companies within the next 5+ years. Don’t quote me on the estimate.
Luke - 09/04/09 - 20:02

Don’t forget the very rare BC09 (formerly BC08 until the airport chief established). BC09 runs out of Sta. 11 when there are extra chiefs on duty using a reserve battalion car.

Great info here! Charlotte is replacing it’s 2 Rescues which are 10+ years old. Anyone know how many miles each has accrued?
[Loopy] - 10/28/09 - 21:20

durham also has a 2nd ladder truck in reserve parked at the fire academy. i believe it is a late 70’s model suthphen aerial that had previously served as ladder 2.
charlie (Email) - 11/11/09 - 13:21

Charlie,
The reserve ladder and reserve ford engine you speak of has been sold.
Also DFD has a Ford super duty with boat trailer for the City’s swift water rescue team.
MS-1 has a new truck coming soon.
Station 5 also houses the Trench Rescue trailer for the City Techincal Rescue Team.
