10/11/11 71 W, 1 I - + 6 - 0 Garner's New Engine 3


The Garner Fire Department took delivery yesterday of a 2011 Pierce Saber pumper and top-mounted no less! How many top-mounts are serving in Wake County currently? (But will we ever see enclosed top-mounts, like they use in Minnesota? Talk about high cabs! Anyway...) The truck replaces a 2007 Pierce Contender, which will replace Engine 4 at Station 4. Lee Wilson has already shot some shots. See his photos.

MIKE I BELIEVE ONLY HOLLY SPRINGS AND GARNER ARE STILL BUYING TOP MOUNT PUMPS. ANY OTHERS?

Griffith FD (Sta. 15) in Forsyth Co. has a Top-mount enclosed cab Pierce, if my memory serves me correct…

The Wallburg FD in Davidson County has two fully enclosed top mount pumpers unless I am mistaken. Technology they have used for a number of years.

wasn’t Durham Highway’s E-One an enclosed top mount?

Are you referring to the one currently serving as Pumper 2? If so, no sir, it is not a top mount pump nor enclosed. I can see where you might think it is because that cab is like 20 feet tall, Michael Jordan can comfortably stand in the back!

Old eight-ball tanker was a Darley with a top mount pump, not enclosed
