11/15/10 145 W, 1 I - + 9 - 5 Raleigh's 1989 Pierce Arrow Pumper For Sale

Step right up and place your bid on a genuine city of Raleigh fire engine. Old Engine 9 is being auctioned on GovDeals.com. The 1989 Pierce Arrow pumper was one of three delivered that year. The others were assigned to Engine 1 and Engine 13. They were the first Pierce pumpers for the city, and the last engines delivered with open jump seats. 'Twas about a year later that Yours Truly fought his first fire while riding that truck, while filling in at Station 9. Duplex, Applewood Lane, one fatality. The truck subsequently served as Engine 18 and entered the reserve fleet in 2005. It was last designated Engine 124. The two others were also recently removed from the reserve fleet, and are assigned to the training center. They're designated Training 1 and Training 2. Read more apparatus histories. Happy bidding.

this truck would probably be a good fit for a rural fire department that can not afford to purchase a new truck.

Correction. This is old Engine 13, not old Engine 9. Have some double-crossed VIN numbers in my records. This truck served as E13, E6, E26, E104, and E122.

Cost $200,000 new. Sold for $5,461.05.
