06/28/09 89 W, 1 I - + 11 - 12 Morrisville's New Engine

Here's Morrisville's new Pumper 3, photographed yesterday by Lee Wilson. Delivered on June 2, the 2009 Pierce Contender pumepr-tanker has a 1500 GPM Hale pump, 1,000 gallon tank, and 40 gallon foam cell with Husky foam system. Has two, count 'em two, hydraulic ladder racks, and carries a 1,500 gallon drop tank. There's a wetdown ceremony at Morrisville Station 2 on July 4. The engine will be placed in service at Morrisville Station 3/Cary Station 7. See more photos from Lee. There's also a picture on the Morrisville Fire Department web site.

That thing is tall for a pumper! MFD folks, what’s the minimum clearance required?

Great looking truck! All the best to MFD!

If it is like the other Pretenders than it is about 10’4” from the factory.

They aren’t all the same anymore, that’s why I asked. With those ladder racks it looks over 11ft

Posting corrected. Wetdown ceremony at Station 2, not Station 3.
