The DuPont Fire Department purchased two new Fire Engines!

These replaced the 1983 Sutphen Engine, the 1995 H&W Engine, and the 2004 Pierce Engine. The City sold the three engines for a combined total of approximately $113,000, which went into the Equipment Rental & Revolving Fund (ER&R) that helped pay for the new engines.

Unlike our previous fire engines, these two Spartan fire trucks are identical making training more efficient, easier, and faster. There is less chance of making a mistake or losing time during a response because each crew is accustomed and trained to the apparatus.

Each engine costs $453,284 plus $87,000 tax making it a total expense of $993,568. ER&R will pay $705,000 and the City financed a loan for $288,598.53. The City will pay approximately $35,000 a year for 10 years.

The new engines are standardized with safety and operational features that the department previously did not have, they are more in line with neighboring departments making mutual aid more manageable, and they address the operational needs of the City.

Currently the Fire Department’s fleet consists of two 2019 Spartan engines, a grant awarded brush truck, a 2018 ALS capable ambulance, and a backup ambulance.
