2023 Project 4- Replace Quint 84


Category: Public Safety (Fire)

Location: Station 86

Estimated Cost: $1,500,000

Project Description: A quintuple combination pumper or "quint" is a fire-fighting apparatus that serves the dual purpose of an engine and a ladder truck. “Quintuple” refers to the five functions that a quint provides - pump, water tank, fire hose, aerial device, and ground ladders. This new aerial apparatus will replace the 2004 aerial apparatus presently used in a reserve capacity in accordance with guidelines set by NFPA (National  Fire Protection Association) for replacement cycles of fire apparatus. Historically, repair costs and downtime of older model vehicles increase significantly as fire apparatuses age. While some of the loose equipment can be reallocated from the vehicle being surplused, this proposal includes funds to upgrade the hydraulic extrication equipment and other equipment nearing their respective end of service life.
