New Engine for Station 3
By Bay District Volunteers
January 27, 2021

This evening the department meet with our salesman from Atlantic Emergency Solutions Randy Schwartz. President Johnson, Secretary Eno, & Treasure Waikart signed the contract for a Pierce Arrow XT Pumper. This will be the departments 7th Pierce apparatus.

The drawing below is the preliminary drawing and will be finalized at the Pre-engineering meeting sometime this summer.

New Engine 31 has a projected delivery date of January 2022.

This unit will have:

Detroit Deisel 525 HP engine
Allison Transmission
Hale 1500 GPM
700 gallon tank
HiViz scene lighting
Seating for 5 personnel
Front & Rear Intakes
360 degree camera system

This will be the first time since we retired out 1983 Henderickson / E-one in 2005 that we will have a true Engine 31 back in the fleet. We were previously running old Engine 92 as Engine 31 as the reserve pumper.

The department thanks the committee members for all the work they had already done and still have ahead of them.
