Heavy Duty Rescue Truck:
The truck and equipment was purchased with Homeland Security Funds to be used by cities and counties in the Sixth Homeland Security Region. This area includes Rutherford, Bedford, Marshall, Moore, Lincoln, Franklin, and Coffee counties. The truck is equipped with extrication equipment, saws, shoring equipment, lifting equipment, and other small tools that can be used in collapsed buildings or in a confined space rescue. Other equipment includes generators, telescoping lights, and portable lights for nighttime rescue operations. It also houses an air compressor to refill self contained breathing equipment used by emergency personnel.
The City of Fayetteville was fortunate to be given the opportunity to house and maintain the vehicle at one of our stations. If any other city or county has a disaster which requires the use of the vehicle, we will deliver it and provide assistance if requested.
Aerial Ladder Truck:
The City of Fayetteville has put into service an E-ONE HP-75 side stacker Aerial Ladder Truck. It has a fully enclosed cab with a seating capacity of seven. It is powered by a Detroit Series 60, 12.7 liter, turbocharged, 445 horsepower engine. The transmission is an Allison electronic five speed automatic.
The HP is equipped with a Hale Q-MAX 1500 gallon per minute pump. It is also equipped with a 1000 gallon per minute Akron electrically controlled monitor at the tip of the ladder. The 75 foot ladder is high strength all-aluminum. It can be operated from the pump panel or the turntable. The ladder can be fully functional and ready to work within 60 seconds.
Fayetteville Mini Fire Truck:
The mini fire truck is a model of the department’s actual truck with working lights and siren. Construction of the truck was a community-wide effort with a major contribution from one local industry. It features a fiber-glass frame built around a riding lawn mower chassis. The truck is used to give school-aged children rides as part of the department’s fire prevention program.
