Command Unit

Engine 1

 

Engine 1

Engine 1 is a 2005 HME pumper and carries our extrication equipment.  Because of its small water tank, it is only used as a reserve and, when staffing allows, for a third out piece of apparatus.  Engine 1 is our primary extrication vehicle as it is well suited to this because of its smaller size and four wheel drive abilitites.

 

 

Engine 2

 

Engine 2

Engine 2 is a 1998 Freightliner / Central States and is a typical rural pumper.  At this time, it is used mainly as a second out apparatus in town or first out response for mutual aid calls (unless a tanker is specifically requested).  Because it is used for mutual aid and to cover other stations, it has additional air bottles and a small set of extrication equipment.

 

 

Engine 3

 

Engine 3

Engine 3 is a 2017 E One and is both a pumper and a tanker and carries 3000 gallons of water.  This is incredibly important in those parts of town that are not serviced by hydrants.  Because of the large water tank, it can operate for a longer duration before needing a hydrant connection. For this reason it is our first out engine for fire response in Ashburnham.

 

 

Tanker 1

 

Tanker 1

Tanker 1 is a 1991 Pierce and was acquired from Shirley Fire Department after it was on loan to us while Engine 3 was out for some repairs.  The opportunity arose to purchase this truck and provide us with a much-needed water hauling ability.  Tanker 1 carries 2500 gallons of water and is second due to fires in hydrant-less areas.

 

 

 

Ladder 1

 

Ladder 1 (Out of Service)

Ladder 1 is a 1982 Mack and has recently been removed from service and needs to be retired.  The cost of repairs would well exceed the vehicle's worth and would not substantially extend the life of the vehicle.
