    Default Telluride, Colorado Fire Apparatus Fleet

    Dear all,

    again I am looking for some specific informations regarding all wheel drive rigs.

    I am working on a book project regarding all wheel drive fire apparatus trucks from the US and would need some informations on the current fleet of the TELLURIDE, COLORADO Fire Apparatus fleet.

    There is no information concerning this topic available on the internet.

    I know that there is a 4x4 Spartan/ Rosenbauer stationed at station 1.

    I saw a photo of a great 4x4 Pierce Dash on flickr.com, but I do not know, if this great truck is still in service there.


    Maybe someone could help me out with this request.

    Some fire apparatus ( especially on the all wheel drive units...) informations of Telluride, CO would be really great!

    Thanks in advance for your help!!!!

    best regards from Austria!
    Lukas

    Dear bigjim54,

    thanks a lot for your informations!!!!

    Unit is sold by maxfire?

    Engine 1 is the 2009 Spartan, 2010 Spartan now is Engine 2, so the 4x4 Pierce is probably gone...

    Thanks again for your informations and the picture!!!

    regards
    Lukas

    A beautiful truck and a beautiful town! I had the opportunity to instruct a pump operations class in Tulluride back in 2002, it is one of the most picturesque places on the planet. Not to mention all of the folks I met from TFD were absolutely great!

    I like on the Rosy that the space between the top of the tire and the cab is much less than the Sutphen. Not a rip on Sutphen, i just think it makes the whole truck look better.

    I know I did look over their apparatus, but I don't recall what all they had. It's been 8 years and I've been to hundreds of other fire departments since.
