06/09/14 97 W, 1 I - + 6 - 4 Emerald Isle's New Rescue Pumper

As photographed by Lee Wilson last week, the Emerald Isle Fire Department recently received this 2014 Spartan Metro Star/Toyne rescue pumper. Hale pump, 1000 gallon tank. Looks the same on both sides. Pump panel is behind compartment door. Helps protect against corrosion. See factory information. See more photos from Lee, in his album of beach trip photos. (You know how this works. Lee takes a trip and Legeros gets a couple blog posts out of the deal.) Next question, how many other departments around the Carolinas have Toyne apparatus?
