APPARATUS NEWS
 

AQUINNAH
 
Mini-Pumper
Aquinnah may look at a mini-pumper size unit
to replace the 2000 Ford Rescue Truck 361.
It could serve as a rescue truck and also operate off road in
areas difficult for the larger engine.
Sept 2018

Humvee
Aquinnah also has acquired a military surplus Humvee which
will eventually be outfitted with a skid unit for beach
rescue and off road access.
May 2017

Boat
Aquinnah also acquired a surplus 24' USCG boat.
Once outfitted with motors and electronics,
it would serve as a water rescue unit.
May 2017

 

BARNSTABLE
 

 

BOURNE 

Engine
Bourne is expecting delivery of a 2018 Emergency One Pumper.
The new engine would replace the 1995 International/E-One
currently assigned to Engine 125. The new engine is likely to
be assigned as Engine 123 at Station 3.  The present E-121
would go back to Station 1.
Update Sept 2018

Brush Breaker
Bourne had planned another new brush breaker similar to
Breaker 129 built in 2013.  It now appears that the military
chassis will instead be used to upgrade the Breaker/Tanker
unit 128 which is on a 1959 chassis.  The components of that
truck are relatively new (2002) when built by Greenwood
for Brewster FD. It has a skid unit 300 gpm/1100 gallons.
Update Nov 2018

Ambulance
Bourne's 2016 International/Lifeline Type I Ambulance 135
that was damaged in an MVC in July 2017 is expected to be
replaced.  Currently a 2006 Chevy 4500/Lifeline unit has been
used for A-135. A new ambulance is likely in 2019.
Posted Oct 2017  Update Nov 2018

Cars
Bourne recently purchased 2 new 2019 Chevy Tahoes (black)
for Chief 141 and Asst Chief 142. 

The 2017 Chevy Tahoe (black) that started out as C141
has been reassigned to the Shift Commander Car 143. 
It will be getting graphics.

The 2013 Chevy Tahoe (maroon) most recently Car 142
has been reassigned to Car 144 for the Station 4 officer.

Status of the 2008 Chevy Tahoe previously Car 144
and the 2011 Chevy Silverado Pickup previously Car 145
are still unclear, but it is believed the pickup will become Car 146.
Nov 2018

 

BREWSTER
 

 

CARVER
 

 

CCNS
 

 

CHATHAM

High Water
Chatham recently acquired a 1998 former military LMTV
to use as a high water rescue unit.  The unit had previously served
as West Barnstable's Forestry 288 since 2017. Chatham and
other communities experienced storm related flooding situations
in recent years and these types of vehicles are becoming more
common.
Aug 2018 / Update Nov 2018
 
 

CHILMARK

Chilmark is reportedly planning to take delivery of a
used Ford Super Duty mini-pumper type forestry acquired
thru Bulldog.
Oct 2018

Ambulance
A new ambulance was approved at the 2018 District Meeting.
It will replace the 2009 International/Horton A-325.
The new ambulance would be an International/Horton Type I
similar to A324 and A326.
June 2018 / Update Nov 2018

Car 323 & C308
COMM recently put a 2019 Chevy Tahoe in service as C-323
the EMS Officer.  The 2008 Chevy Pickup, previously C-323
has been reassigned to Car 308, for utility use.
Update Nov 2018

Nov 2018

Ambulance
Dennis is expecting delivery of a new Ambulance.
Expected to be the same Ford/Horton style.
Probably due in 2019
Updated Nov 2018


 

DUXBURY
 

 

EASTHAM

Forestry
Eastham has ordered a new Forestry Truck.
It is expected to be a Ford with a small skid unit similar
to those in Brewster and Chatham.
The truck will replace the 1991 International/Metal Masters
Special Hazards 158 that Eastham got from CCNS in 2003.
Due in 2019
Update Nov 2018
 

 

EDGARTOWN

Mini-Pumper
Edgartown is believed to be awaiting a used mini-pumper
type vehicle to replace the 1981 GMC / E-One Engine 223
at the Chappy Station . The smaller vehicle would be more
suited for responding to EMS calls and accessing properties
down narrow driveways.  It could also tow a boat trailer.
Oct 2018 / Update Nov 2018

 Engine 222
Edgartown recently placed a new 2018 KME Preditor
1500/750/20A Pumper in service as Engine 2.
The vehicle replaced a 2007 E-One CAFS Pumper that
was traded in to help offset the cost of the new engine.
A loaner engine, 1993 Ford F800/E-One 1250/750 had
been used while the new truck was being built.
Updated Nov 2018

 


FALMOUTH

Future Apparatus
Falmouth has fallen behind in recent years with apparatus replacements.
Currently the town is planning a capital replacement program that
would fund the replacement of the current 1991 Emergency One 110'
aerial Ladder 26.  It would also purchase 2 new ambulances.
If this goes thru, purchases would likely be in 2019.
Nov 2018
 

Engine
Falmouth is awaiting delivery of a new Pierce Arrow XT Pumper.
The engine is expected to be very similar to the previous Pierce
Engine 25 delivered in 2016.  The new engine replaces the 1996
E-One Foam Pumper Engine 22 that had to be taken out of service
for mechanical failures in July 2017.

Since that time, the "spare" Engine 20, a 1995 International/E-One
has been serving as Engine 22, leaving the department without a
spare engine.  This has frequently resulted in the West Falmouth
station being closed so that its 1992 Sutphen Engine 24 could be
relocated while maintenance or repairs was done to other engines.
That engine was acquired in 2016 when the last two Ford/E-One
engines from 1987 were suddenly taken out of service.
Update Nov 2018

Fire Alarm Truck 19
Falmouth was planning to replace high mileage 1991 Fire Alarm C-19,
but that apparently has been put on hold for now.
Nov 2018
 

 


HARWICH

Engine 68
Harwich recently put a 2018 Freightliner M2 4x4 / SVI Wildland
Interface stype pumper in service as Engine 68. It is a short wheel base
1000 gpm / 500 gallon unit that is expected to be second due out of
Station 2 and used for storms and  off road situations.
It replaced the used 1987 Pierce Arrow 1500/1000 Pumper that
has served as E68 since 2011.  It was previously COMM FD
Engine 303.
Nov 2018


Boat
Harwich also got a surplus rigid hull inflatable boat in 2017.
Update April 2018

LAKEVILLE

Engine 1

for Engine 1.  The new engine replaced the 1995 International/KME
which was traded in.
Update April 2018

Engine 2
The 2003 Pierce Saber 1250/750 Pumper acquired in 2012 by Lakeville has been
taken out of service after failing an inspection due to mechanical issues.
Update April 2018

Engine 3
Shortly after Engine 2 went out of service, so did the 1991 Pierce Dash
Engine3 acquired by Lakeville in 2011.  This engine is expected to go
back into service, but in the meantime, Lakeville borrowed a 1986
Ford / Ranger 1250/1000 pumper from Freetown FD.  It is lettered
Engine 4.
