New Engine for Western Taney County Fire District

The Western Taney County Fire District placed a new Rescue/Engine in service on June 3, 2023. Besides being a regular engine, it is set up for rescue work, primarily vehicle extrication. The Engine was built by Rosenbauer and has a 1,500GPM rear-mounted pump, a 750-gallon water tank and a light tower. The engine fights a lot of house fires in non-hydrant areas and the rear-mounted pump allows the porta-tank to be set up behind the truck instead of beside it. It also provides a long compartment behind the cab for brooms, shovels, etc. This engine replaces a 2000 Freightliner.
