Our company has purchased these over the past few months, beginning in January of 2005.

This is our newest piece, a 2005 Pierce Dash Pumper, classified as Engine 21-1.

Our new Tanker, Tanker 21.

Our Ambulance and Squad pick-up are on the website somewhere, but i can't find them. Check out our company's website,

Do you have a 6K gallon dump tank to hold all that water on the fire grounds or does the truck stay there until it's empty?

We use 2K gallon straight trucks w/ fold-a-tanks to store the water on site so the truck can return to the fill site.

In MN there are no rules inRE the driving of fire apparatus. My class "d" license (lowest) allows me to drive ANY vehicle in my fleet. I would hope that whoever is driving that tanker has a CDL. Also, is it baffled or does it like to rock and surge when 1/2 full?

Looking good! It is pretty tall though.

We fill our tanker on scene. If our company responds to a fire and its big enough to the point where there's a chance of the tanker running out of water, then the odds are there's gonna be other companies there as well. We usually refill off of other tankers if we're the first responding units. But it's usually not a problem. The new engine has all kinds of goodies in it, it even has air conditioning and a cd player.
