2001 Pierce Aerial
The 2001 Pierce aerial (Ladder 1) and rescue pumper (Engine 6) are Dash 2000’s and were ordered at the same time. The rescue pumper is a 2-stage 1500 gallons per minute, with a 500-gallon water tank. It has a compressed air foam system with both A and B foam tanks. It can flow foam out of all pre-connected hose lines as well as the 500-gallon per minute-deck gun.
The engine is equipped with a four-bottle cascade system, with booster pump, engineered by Pierce.
Due to height restrictions at its assigned station, the ground ladders are stowed within the hose body. The rig also carries a full complement of hazardous materials response equipment, and is equipped with a 450 HP Detroit Diesel. These 2001 pieces of apparatus each have front bumper trash lines.
