Engine 7-2 is a 1995 Pierce Saber. Engine 2 is setup as our non-structural engine. It responds as our primary unit to vehicle accidents and it is also capable of structural response.It is equipped with a 1500 GPM Waterous single stage pump with a 500 gallon water tank. There is 1000′ of 5″ LDH Supply line, along with 2 – 1-3/4″ x 200′ crosslays, 1 – 1-3/4″ x 100′ trash line off the front bumper and 1 – 2-1/2″ x 200′ preconnect off the rear.
Engine 7-2 carries a few pieces of equipment not carried anywhere else in our fleet, which include a set of Nightmare Rescue Struts, which allows us to complete some advanced stabilization techniques during vehicle rescue operations, etc.
Engine 7-2 is the oldest piece in our fleet at 12 years old. It is well kept, so it really doesn’t show it’s age…pride in appearance and our apparatus plays a big part in that.
