    Default Cedar Fort Fire Department needs help! ! !

    My name is Colby Burgess i'm a Volunteer Firefighter for Cedar Fort Fire Department Recently The Cedar Fort Fire Department had to retire our front line engine a 1980 American LaFrance due to a pump failure and having the piping all rusted through. Were now using our back-up engine a 1970 American LaFrance that we have to use starter fluid and sometimes jump the batteries because it's a bugger to start. Were a small town with a small budget, but we need an engine to protect out citizens. If anyone knows a Department surplusing any engines PLEASE e-mail me with contact information at xxuhpxx@yahoo.com Thanks!

    Sincerely,

    Firefighter/EMT-I

    As for fire departments surplusing any engines, I can't help you there, but I did a quick craigslist search. I don't know how new you're looking to go, or any specifics, but heres what I found.

    http://iowacity.craigslist.org/rvs/1618095751.html

    http://madison.craigslist.org/cto/1608245617.html (this probably isn't at all what you're looking for as it is primarily a tanker, but I thought I would include it anyway.)

    Also, this site has used trucks for sale. 1st link is for Pumpers 85 and newer. Second link is for 84 and older Pumpers.

    http://www.firetrucksplus.com/vehicl...categoryid_E_6

    http://www.firetrucksplus.com/vehicl...ategoryid_E_14

    Hope this helps. I know it's not EXACTLY what you were looking for, but hopefully it helps.

    EDIT: I kept browsing and found some more sites.

    http://www.firelineequipment.com/

    http://www.fentonfire.com/

    Again, hope this helps at all.

    Sir:

    My deepest regret and respect.

    I just learned of Chief Hales passing earlier this month.


    "We'll take it from here Chief"


    Mr. Burgess: I have a few ideas for you sir. I will be in touch.
    HAVE PLAN.............WILL TRAVEL

    Chenzo thanks for all those websites i'll take a look at them and see what I can come up with. Were a small town with a small budget so i've got to find things within the means of the towns budget

    I know how that is. Small town and small budget here too. There are some reasonably priced rigs on those sites, and the two craigslist postings are relatively cheap, but I can't comment on the reliability of either. What's your price range? If I hear of something, I can give you a heads up.
