Discussion: Thoughts on replacing 7-6-7 with a used Mini attack pumper. Details listed below.

 

Replacement of 7-6-7 with Mini Attack Pumper

 

The Chief’s Office is interested in trading in the current 7-6-7 for this 2016 Mini Attack Pumper. The rig would be painted top black to match our current fleet and lettered. Command Fire Apparatus would accept 7-6-7 on a trade for $30,000.00 off the price of $219,000.00 ($189,000.00 Total).

The rig is equipped (specs below) to perform scene support, structural firefighting, auto extrication / winch operations. It is 4x4 equipped and has a hose reel, generator and onboard foam system.

We feel this rig would be a financially sound investment for the District that would allow us:

  • Off-road capabilities (The Hills Development and several side streets we have had access issues with)
  • Snow / Severe Weather equipped (4x4)
  • Quick Response and Deployment (Sunrise Hwy / Booster Line Ops)
  • Has enough compartment space to handle our heavy rescue tools / rehab gear.
  • Compact to deploy close to a fire scene (scene support /lighting)
  • Driver issues should not be a problem allowing us to train personnel to operate.
  • Dedicated Foam System that is ready to use
