04/07/10 87 W, 1 I - + 6 - 4 Charlotte's New Rescues

The Charlotte Fire Department has taken delivery of two new rescues. Built by SVI on Spartan chassis. Not in service yet. They'll replace twin Spartan/Saulsbury units from 1998/1999, which replaced twin Pierce Lance units from 1988, which replaced Ford Econoline vans. The rescue companies are housed at Station 3 and Station 10. Thanks to Jeff Harkey for the info and passing along the photo. We'll surely see better and higher-res pictures soon enough, and even if our name isn't Shirley.

Now that’s a heavy rescue….good luck to the Queen City with their new rides.
