    Default Previous Pumper Awardees

    For those awarded Pumpers in the past, what was your department characteristic and call volume?

    Urban, Suburban, Rural.

    I know Rural sees the most Tankers and Quick Attacks; all three should get a good mix of the Pumpers.

    Have an Urban department with a rather low call volume, just want to see what the stats look like.

    I got one for a dept. last year that has a 36 square mile protection area, 630 residents, three trucks, a $10,000 budget, no businesses (mostly trees) and had 18 total calls including false alarms..... $280,000

    Replaced a 41 year old engine....so the need was there.
