Gwinnett Welcomes Four New Fire Trucks

Four more new fire trucks will soon join the dozen that Gwinnett County bought during the past two years. Commissioners on Tuesday approved a $1.7 million contract, to be paid with SPLOST funds, from North America Fire Equipment Co. Inc., of Decatur, Ala.

Fire stations 2, 10, 14 and 25 are slated to get the four new triple-combination rescue-style pumper trucks that can pump 1,500 gallons of water per minute to douse a fire. During 2008, the County has received 12 similar fire engines ordered previously from the same company. Three of those were for new stations 28, 29 and 30. The other nine went to stations 4, 8, 9, 11, 12, 15, 20, 22 and 23.

Fire Chief Steve Rolader said, “These purchases not only equip our newest stations, which are also built with SPLOST funds, but they also upgrade and modernize our ability to fight fires from many of our existing stations as well.”
