09/27/08 114 W, 2 I - + 11 - 9 RFD & RPD Apparatus Bids

The city of Raleigh recently awarded fire apparatus bids to Triad Fire, a Pierce dealer. The bids were for two engines, and two 100-foot platforms. The latter ladders are rear-mounts. Timeframe for delivery is probably 12 months. The Raleigh Fire Department presently has three platforms on the roster, a 1999 American LaFrance (L20), a 1995 Simon-Duplex (reserve), and a 1988 Pierce (reserve). Also awarded earlier this summer to C. W. Williams was the bid for a police special operations support vehicle. Something similiar to EMS Truck 1, perhaps? For many years, RPD has utilized retired RFD rescue units for special ops support, as shown below. Read all about recent apparatus and equipment bids.
