Agenda packet (PDF)

The agenda packet includes the usual replacement schedules for apparatus and small vehicles. Note that this year’s scheduled engine replacements are Garner Pumper 5, Stony Hill Pumper 365, Wake-New Hope Engine 8, and Wendell Engine 112.

Pierce was recently awarded the bid for these trucks. They’re Pierce Impel chassis pumpers, 1250/1000, and option for pumper-tanker configuration. Will advise as more is known, such as start of production or any drawings passed along.

365 or 395? Is that a freudian slip that Bayleaf and Stony Hill are merging?

More likely a typo, Jay.

Knightdales FY14-15 budget had them putting down 400,000 for the replacement of Engine 131. They presently have a 2002 Pierce/International(131), a 2007 Pierce Saber(132), a 2006 Pierce Contender(134), a 1972 Mack Fire Engine(133), and a 1998 Pierce Quantum 105’ Ladder(135). They also run a 2005 Ford F-250 for medical and chiefs vehicle is a newer Chevy Tahoe, all of this according to their website. Is the replacement of 131 in production and what is the make/model/specs for the unit? Also, it begs the question, why isn’t the 1972 Mack(133) not being replaced and the 30 year newer Pierce being replaced? The website suggests that the 1972 Mack is still in service, so this is my thinking. Thanks for any info, perhaps someone from Knightdale would know.
