05/04/12 165 W, 2 I - + 5 - 6 Lake Norman's New Pierce Engine (and Others)

Found on the Pierce Flickr page, this sharp-looking Pierce Arrow XT was delivered to Lake Norman Fire Department in Iredell County. Serves as Engine 2, says the department's web site. See larger version. Lake Norman, by the way, is the largest fresh water body in North Carolina. Over 50 square miles. And which compels the obvious question: how many fire departments in how many countries serve Lake Norman? And with how many fire boats??


The company's Flickr page is a great site for armchair apparatus viewing. Check out the Spring 2012 deliveries set and the assorted rigs delivered to China. Couple monster three-axle, industrial-looking pumpers in there. Here's another Flickr user's shot of job 25130 on a flatbed in Los Angeles (I think), headed probably to the port.

The Pierce New Delivery site has a smaller subset of photos, but still some interesting finds. Here's Fayetteville's Pierce Arrow XT pumper that was delivered in January. Nice looking truck!


“how many fire departments in how many countries serve Lake Norman?”

Is that like a fusion of a country and a county? USwake? ;)

That Lake Norman truck is one good looking piece.
Any new Pierces coming to Wake Co/Raleigh that we know of yet?

Davidson, Cornelius, and Huntersville in Mecklenburg Co; Lake Norman and Mt Mourne in Iredell Co; Sherrils Ford-Terrell in Catawba Co, Denver and East Lincoln in Lincoln Co serve Lake Norman. I think just about each dept has a boat with the exception of Davidson, Mt Mourne and East Lincoln.

The Lake Norman engine is one of the sharpest I’ve seen. I especially like the covering over the light tower being red instead of diamond plate. Diamond plate on the roof really detracts from some beautiful trucks.
