Hey Adam just curious, which and what kind of pumper did yall replace with the new engine 11?
Car 1 - 09/29/10 - 21:55

Engine 11 is a 2010 Pierce Contender. This is a straight engine, no dump valve and we also choose not to place a booster reel on board. The pump is a 1500/1000 hale side mount. Ladders are on the exterior passenger side, Foam Pro, two cross lays above the pump panel, 6 kw hydraulic generator, two head night scan, 1500 watt brow light, All Whelen led lighting, we carry 1000’ 5”, 400’ 3” to a gated wye, 2 100’ 1 3/4” lines with 1 from the gated wye one dead load, a 200’ 2 1/2” rear pre-connect with smooth bore, the two cross lays are 1 3/4” with elkhart nozzles that break apart for fog or smooth bore tips, the front bumper has a 2 1/2” discharge w/ gated wye with a 100’ 1 3/4” in the center tray and the addition of 100’ 1” forestry line in the right side tray, carry basic cribbing ie step chocks, 4×4s and a sawzall, basic tools carried in the cab, Officer has the thermal, flashlight and portable radio mounted for quick access, rear facing officer side seat has a water can flashlight and Irons mounted for quick access, rear facing drivers side seat has flashlight mounted for quick access, two forward facing seats are rarely used, a roof hook is mounted on the rear of the cab wall exterior passenger side again for easy access. We have basic engine company tools mounted in compartments ranging from additional nozzles to forestry rakes.
When the apparatus spec committee was put together, we brain stormed several ideas that lead to where we are at today operationally. We set our apparatus numbering up for future stations along with developing a base guideline for firefighter duties on the fire ground based on where they ride the apparatus.
This engine replaced a 1999 crew cab international, known as engine 5, engine had a 1500/1000 Waterous top mount pump with dump valve, the engine had a stretched cab, along with the top mount and rescue style body made the engine a long engine measuring some where around 35-36 feet long and the turning radius of several football fields, this engine being newer than the one above just didn’t suit what or needs and demands are.
Our current apparatus rooster consists of the following:
Engine 10 2004 Pierce Enforcer 1500/1000 waterous side mount (Pumper/Tanker)
Engine 11 2010 Pierce Contender 1500/1000 Hale side mount (Engine)
Engine 12 1984 EEI/Duplex 1500/750 Hale Top Mount (Engine)
Ladder 10 1991 E-ONE Cyclone 1500/500 75’ stick Hale Side mount (Ladder)
Truck 10 2001 Pierce Saber Non Walk-in rescue
Brush 7 1999 f-350 dually with skid unit
Foam 6 1991 Chevy Kodiak with 500 gallon foam cell permanent mounted deluge gun and two permanent mounted foam eductor 1-1 ¾” 1- 2 ½”
Chief 1 2004 F-150 crew cab.
Our in district structure fire response is broke down as
Engine 11, Engine 10, Ladder 10, Engine 12, Truck 10
Our mutual aid response is
Engine 10, Engine 12 or what ever is requested.

Hope this helps!!
