Pictured above is the new 2018 KME, Panther Pumper (1500 GPM) which is housed at Station #2 as Engine 2 (E25-20) and the refurbished 2007 HME Pumper which is housed at Station #1 as Engine 1 (E25-10). 

The new engine along with the new 2018 Chevy Tahoe Chief's vehicle and the refurbishing work on 25-10 is the result of many months of hard work by the Truck Committee. Developing specs, getting things ordered, checking the construction progress, arranging financing, testing and accepting the finished product and finally conducting training on the new rig have all been planned and coordinated by our leaders. This process started in 2016 with the development of plans for a vehicle to fill our needs. Our officers, under the direction of Chief Bill McDermott,  deserve a lot of praise for this effort.
