Suppression - Fire Engines
One of the most used suppression vehicles that not only transports firefighting personnel to the scene but also carries all necessary tools/equipment to the scene is the fire engine. The Fire Department currently has two (2) fire engines, both of our 2009 and 2015 engines have a 750-gallon water tank, a 30-gallon foam tank and can pump 1,500 gallons of water per minute. Each vehicle carries 1000 ft of 4” large diameter hose, 600 ft of 2.5” hose and 900 ft of 1.75” hose to fight different type of fires and to assist neighboring fire departments. Each engine also has the needed tools to handle vehicle accidents with or without patron entrapments, small spills, and many more rescue emergencies. These engines are also capable of providing BLS medical services
In 2020, AHFD put together a committee consisting of fire personnel to form what is called the Fire Apparatus Committee. This committee had the responsibility to gather information to spec out a new fire engine for the fire department. The committee completed the engine specs and procured new Rosenbauer engine in January of 2020 with the anticipated delivery date of June 2021. This fire engine will significantly add to the complement of fire apparatus at AHFD.
Suppression - Aerial Ladder Trucks
In addition to the fire engines in the fire department there are three (3) aerial ladder trucks or “Quints” that are similar in nature. Two (2) of the aerial/Quints are 1997’s vehicles and have a 500-gallon water tank with a 75-foot extendable/ retractable articulating ladder, a compliment of ground ladders ranging from 16 ft to 35 ft, 1,000 ft of 4” large diameter hose, 400 ft of 2.5” hose, 500 ft of 1.75” with both aerials’ having the capability of pumping 1,500 gallons of water per minute. The third aerial/Quint is a 2018 with a 400 gallon water tank, a 30 gallon foam tank, a 100-foot extendable/ retractable articulating ladder, 950 ft of 5” large diameter hose, the same amount of ladders and smaller diameter fire hoses, and is capable of pumping 2,000 gallons of water per minute.
The fire apparatus committee was again tasked with the gathering of ideas and information to spec out a new aerial ladder truck for purchase. The aerial specs were put out for bid at the beginning of 2021.These designs and specs will be reviewed the first couple of weeks of February 2021. The anticipated delivery date for this vehicle will be in 2022.
