PCFD apparatus committee flies to Minnesota for final inspection on new E33 fire truck
PARK CITY, Utah — The Park City Fire Department will be getting a new tool at their disposal with the soon-to-arrive E33 fire engine.
PCFD Apparatus committee members Jon Jahp, Matt Provost, and Brandon Pyper flew to the city of Wyoming, Minnesota to perform final inspections, such as a road test, pump test, and a visual inspection at the Rosenbauer America Plant, where the fire engine was built.
The new E33 fire truck will be delivered sometime in the coming weeks. Acquiring a new fire engine can take up to three years from start to finish. Initially, a committee will evaluate needs within a response area and then look at a manufacturer’s technological offerings to fulfill requirements. From there, the PCFD Apparatus committee will provide specifications to be built.
The new fire engine will join multiple other vehicles that comprise the district’s apparatus ranging from electric motorcycles to large aerial fire engines with their expanding ladders or platforms.
