04/12/12 62 W, 1 I - + 6 - 7 Morrisville Engine 1 and Rescue 1

Expertly posed and photographed by Lee Wilson yesterday at Morrisville Station 1. Left is a 1989 Simon-Duplex/KME/Saulsbury heavy rescue, right is a 2006 KME Predator. See more photos. The rescue came from somewhere up north. Open question for Thursday morning. How many other used rigs are serving around here, either locally swapped or obtained elsewhere?

RE: Locke Township Truck. It was used on April 15, 2011 at the Corriher Heights Baptist Church Fire before it was officially placed in service. It can be scene in action, still in Kent Island markings, in this article: http://www.salisburypost.com/News/040511..

one of Swift Creek’s old Tankers is now in service with Apex FD, as is one of Durham Highways old light rescue trucks.

I think Holly Springs had one of Fuquay’s old engines for a while.

One of Western Wake’s Suburbans was re-allocated to Swift Creek a few years back as well.

We currently have a Custom Grumman Fire Cat that served Toms River NJ and a Quint that served Ft.Myers Beach Fire-Rescue.

Moville is actually getting ready to replace said rescue. It has not been put out for bid yet but it is in next years budget. Not sure if they have chosen a manufacturer yet. Medium rescue size I think. Probably will sell it so it can serve yet another department.

Any one have any idea as to what happened to Garner Rescue 881 the EVI truck. I know the old International ended up at newton grove
curious - 04/14/12 - 14:46

Is that Parkwood rescue the old Garner 881?? Sure looks like it…
Legeros - 04/14/12 - 15:15

Unless they have done away with the rotoray and made a few changes to the front end, I dont believe that this is the same truck though it sure does look very similar.
Curious - 04/14/12 - 17:56

Ah, yes, the Roto-Ray…
Legeros - 04/14/12 - 18:07

It is not the same truck… Newer 881 went to Sampson County as well as the old one…
Chuck - 04/14/12 - 18:54

One of Wake New Hopes International tankers went to Rose Hill recently, repainted white serving at Tanker 4. Not sure which department got the newer 881 in Sampson County, the old 881 is definately at Newton Grove serving at 551.
