November 9, 2018

Inc. to purchase a new Pierce fire engine to replace the current Engine 98, a 2002 KME Engine. This purchase keeps the Royersford Fire Department on its scheduled 15 year replacement plan of apparatus. By instituting and maintaining a schedule to replace apparatus every 15 years it ensures all apparatus are in good working and functional condition when they are called upon for emergency response. A 15 year replacement plan also allows for new safety devices to be incorporated into the design of the apparatus making the apparatus as safe as possible for the responders. With the signed agreement for purchase the Department will be placing the current 2002 KME up for sale.

The new Pierce engine will be equipped with the following:
