Engine 15-1

24.jpg

This truck was designated as Engine 15 until the new Pierce Quantum arrived. When that truck went into service early in 2008, the 1996 Dash then became Engine 15-1. A decision was made in early 2009 to convert the newly designated 15-1 into a rescue pumper. In September of 2009 Homatro installed the new rescue tools and compartment modifications on Engine 15-1 in the rear compartment where the booster reel was located.
