New Multi-Purpose Fire Engine
Rainbow City Fire Department has received a new fire engine built for their special needs. Firefighters in Rainbow City are proud to have the new fire engine that allows them to carry an array of equipment, all on one truck, as opposed to being kept on different trucks and trailers. The recently delivered Pierce Dash CF PUC is designed to give the driver increased visibility along with a much safer layout all the way around.
Firefighters do not just respond to fires they also respond to wrecks, emergency medical calls, water rescue, rope rescue, hazardous material calls and whatever else comes their way. Unfortunately, when we receive the call it doesn't always paint a clear picture of what equipment we are going to need. There have been numerous incidents where we arrive on scene and don't have the equipment to mitigate the situation; so we have to call for another Engine to respond to bring a service truck or technical rescue trailer. This truck will now give us the ability to have the equipment we need 99% of the time.
