Vt. FD purchases 2 new Smeal apparatus to serve growing community
SNYDER, Neb. — Spartan Emergency Response, a subsidiary of REV Group, and leading manufacturer of fire apparatus is proud to announce that Williston Fire Department in Vermont has chosen Spartan, and its authorized dealer New England Fire Equipment and Apparatus, to provide the town with two new apparatus. The order includes one Smeal 105’ Rear Mount Ladder and one Pumper/Tanker.
Vehicle safety and functionality are top priorities for the department as Williston has experienced significant growth over the past several years requiring them to expand their response capabilities.
With numerous multi-story residential developments, the community's growing response needs will be well served by the Smeal 105’ Rear Mount Ladder, featuring a 101’ horizontal reach at 0 degrees, 750 lb. wet/dry unrestricted tip load and 1500 GPM flow capacity. The aerial, built on a Spartan Gladiator chassis, with the Spartan Advanced Protection System (APS), is the industry’s leading comprehensive safety enhancement package, and the only safety system featuring side-impact protection.
The custom-built pumper/tanker, designed to haul large amounts of water, will service 60% of the city’s response area that is not covered by a hydrant system. The truck features a 1500-gallon water tank and a Waterous CSUC 1500 GPM pump with portable pond and dump capabilities.
“We are looking forward to the expanded resources these trucks will add to our fleet to protect and serve the citizens of Williston,” said Timothy Gerry, Captain, Williston Fire Department.
