Colleton County Fire-Rescue
Representatives from Fire-Rescue conducted the pre-delivery inspection on the two new Engines Monday 10-November. Constructed by Emergency One (E-One) of Ocala Florida, the units were ordered earlier in the year. The company is one of the leading fire apparatus manufacturers in the US. This was the final step in the manufacturing process, clearing the units for delivery later in the month.
These units are a new design for Fire-Rescue. Our specifications have changed little in the past fifteen years. While our agency has several custom cab Engines in the fleet, these two are the first new customs designed specifically for our department from the ground up. Both feature 2000 GPM Hale fire pumps, large diameter discharges for use with LDH hose, six man cabs, bigger motors and a great deal of compartment space to accommodate the ever growing compliment of equipment we use. Each carries about 100 gallons more water and incorporate some new safety features to better protect our firefighters. The units will be assigned to Stations 1 and 19. The CAFS Engine at Station # 1 will be reassigned to Station # 26, with Engine 26 being reassigned to one of the new
|stations to be constructed early next year.|
