Engine 551 Arrives

2013 Pierce Impel

After many hours of hard work comparing, testing, and driving numerous fire apparatus we are proud to add E551 to or fleet. E551 was built In Appleton, Wisconsin by Pierce manufacturing during the fall of 2013. E551 has many of the newest technologies that will assist our firefighters. Some of these technologies are a command zone which serves the driver with detailed information regarding how the truck is operating, what doors are open, and an integrated backup camera for added safety while backing. E551 maneuverability is second to none as in has the sharpest turn radius of any fire truck on the market today. E551 is also a pleasure to ride in due to the TAK4 independent front wheel suspension. E551boasts a 1500 gallon per minute Hale pump, 750 gallon on board water tank, and a husky 3 direct injection foam system. E551 was placed in front line service in late 2013.
