01/06/12 101 W, 1 I - + 2 - 5 Shannon Fire Department's New Rosenbauer

From a reader, here's an interesting looking engine and another Rosenbauer in the Carolinas. This one's operated by Shannon Fire Department in Robeson County. Their old station (which is beside their current station) was one of my stops, while roaming down south earlier this week. The top-mounted pumper is a 1,250 GPM beauty with 1,000 gallon tank. The chassis is a Spartan Furion. Internal compartments for ladder and suction hose storage. Read more specs. Looking at the Rosenbauer web site, their trucks are making in-roads around here. Topsail Beach. Mount Airy. Rocky Mount. Etcetera.

Red Oak Community VFD (Pitt Co.) has a 2009(?) Rosenbauer pumper that serves as 5101. I’ll see if I can get more specs for you, but it’s a nice rig. It’s painted in Chicago-style black over red on a Spartan Metro Star chassis. It’s pretty sweet.

Saw this one in the 4th of July parade in Pembroke (Robeson County) this past year. I thought it was the worst looking one in the parade. Mike, if you are ever back down that way, Pembroke has a Red/White/Blue Bi-Centennial ALF from 1976. Gas powered at that.

Thanks for the tip on the Bicentennial rig. We’ll put you down as not a fan of the Spartan bullet-nose look…

Mount Airy does not own a Rosenbauer. They just bought a 100’ Platform from E-One and its a beauty.

I sit corrected, Mt. Airy, DE, is what I saw on the Rosenbauer site. Should’ve looked closer! http://www.rosenbaueramerica.com/deliver..

I’ve heard through the grapevine Buies Creek FD is getting a rosenbauer rescue body on a Spartan chassis. Heard possibly a walk-in as well. Anyone able to comment on anything further about the truck. It’s nice to see Rosenbauer making a name for them selves and man it’s great to see Spartans finally coming back to the south

Nice truck. Good to see something different from time to time.

Carolina Beach runs a Rosenbauer tower ladder now, delivery was 2010 if not mistaken

Also would be nice to see some more Crimson rigs. Never knew that the company was a product of a merger between quality and luverne
