PROVINCETOWN
 
3 Engines
Provincetown is in the process of getting 3 new engines.
Expected to be custom built Ferrara pumpers.
The order will replace the two engines which were damaged
by salt water during a 2018 winter storm. It took a while to get
the funding and insurance settlement but the two new engines
to replace the damaged 2002 Freightliner/Ferrara 1250/500 Engine 190
and the 2003 HME/Ferrara 1250/500 Engine 193 have been ordered.
The third engine is essentially a twin of E190, the 2001 Freightliner/
Ferrara 1250/500 Engine 195.  It is being replaced due to age.
Each will be built on short 153" wheel base chassis to minimize
overall length to fit in stations and get around Provincetown streets.
Ptown is evaluating options for loaner apparatus or other plans
while 50% of the pumping apparatus are out of service for as
much as a year as the  new apparatus are built.
Updated June 2019

Cars

was also damaged by salt water in the storms of 2018.

Expected in Spring 2019
April 2018



 

SANDWICH

A lot of changes have been and continue to be in progress at Sandwich.

SQUAD
One of the most recent is the acquisition of a 1998 Pierce Saber
that formerly belonged to Dalton, MA.  The "Squad 4", County 454,
as it will be known is white with a red stripe, has a 500 gpm pump and
500 gallon tank. Equipped with a generator, winch, and lots of compartment
space, the vehicle will serve a support/backup role carrying much of the
specialized rescue equipment carried in trailers currently. The plan is
for this vehicle, along with the next ambulance that is retired, to become
as special hazards company.
May 2019

AMBULANCE
Another Ford F550 / Lifeline Ambulance is on order.
May 2019

QUINT
Sandwich has ordered a Ferrara 1750/500 77' Quint aerial
that will be assigned to the new Forestdale station when delivered
approximately Fall 2019.  It will be the primary first due fire engine
from that station and will be the second aerial device in town.
May 2019

FORESTRY
Sandwich acquired a used 1998 Ford pickup with a 250 gallon tank
to serve a reserve forestry role. 
It also plans a new Ford F350 which will be set up as a Forestry truck.
Ultimately, there will be (2) brush breakers in town (Sta 1 & 3) and
(3) forestry trucks (Sta 1, 2, & 3)

CARS
Sandwich also seems to have done a hand-me-down of cars,
but it is not clear what is what at the moment.  The former C442
appears to have become C467.  Maybe a new Car 443. The former
Fire Prev C467 is reassigned as S-2 (duty car at Station 2).
A new pickup is on order.
Much of this is very fluid, but is expected to firm up once the
new station opens in July 2019.

MAY 2019

Previous posting

Future Apparatus
ENGINES
In August 2018, the 2007 Sutphen 1250/750 Engine 451 (Eng 1)
was taken out of service unexpectedly for major mechanical issues.
This left the department with only 2 engines to cover 3 stations.

A 1989 Pierce Lance 1500/1000 Pumper that was recently retired
from Brewster Engine 233 was available for a very reasonable price
and Sandwich took it and put it in service as Engine 451 (Eng 1)
at Station 1.

Sandwich has looked at a number of options to upgrade their
engine fleet.  Initial thoughts were to purchase an engine and
an aerial quint. 

Currently, the plan is to seek funding at the
Spring 2019 Town Meeting for 2 new Engines. They would be 1500 gpm
with 1000 gallon tanks.
One would be assigned to Engine 451 (Eng 1) at Station 1.
The other would be assigned to the new Forestdale Station 3 as Engine 453 (Eng 3).
Sandwich has been looking at Ferrara and Pierce for the
two replacement engines.

The present Engine 453 (Eng 3) 2009 Sutphen Pumper would
become a 4th Engine, assigned to Station 3. Sandwich has not
had 4 engines for many years and the additional vehicle will
enable better coverage and service for the town.

Sandwich is also evaluating the option of keeping the
1989 Pierce Lance as a spare engine.
Updated Jan 2019


Ambulance
Sandwich is anticipating delivery of a new 2019 Ford F550/Lifeline
Type I Ambulance to replace the 2012 International/Horton Type I
Ambulance 458. It is expected around May 2019.

The 2012 International (former 458) would likely be kept
and converted into a Special Services Unit carrying equipment
and serving during the unusual type incidents that happen on
the rare occasion, but have special needs.
It would likely be assigned to the new Station 3.
Updated Jan 2019
 

Command Car
Sandwich has put a new 2019 Ford F150 4x4 4 door Pickup Truck
with a full cap in service as the Command Car 460 (Car 3).
The new vehicle carries a great deal of technology with additional
computers, radios, and supporting communications equipment.
The Duty Officer is currently assigned to Station 1 with the vehicle.
Plans are to move the Duty Officer to the new Station 3 when it opens.
Updated Jan 2019

The former Car 460, 2010 Ford Expedition, is being kept as a
utility vehicle

The department hopes to seek a Ford F350 Pickup
that would be assigned to Station 2 for the officer and to
enable better access to beaches and other difficult access
locations.

School Car
Sandwich purchased a new 2019 Ford Fusion AWD car
to be used as a school and support vehicle.
It replaced the 2008 Ford Taurus Car 455.
Updated Jan 2019

Forestry
The present Forestry 468, 2010 Ford F350 4x4 flat bed
forestry truck will remain at Station 1.

The present 2017 Ford F350 Pickup Truck assigned to Station 3
as Car 440 will be equipped with a skid unit to serve as a
patrol/forestry vehicle when needed.

High Water
Sandwich had acquired a 2009 Freightliner former military chassis
to be used as the platform to replace the former Foam Tanker 465.
The 1973 GMC chassis that had been used as a water tanker
and the foam tanker was removed from service and cut up during
a Jaws training drill in 2018.

Sandwich recently took the regional 500 Gallon Foam trailer 4
that had been assigned to Mashpee.  This reduced the need for
a foam tanker and opened the use of the chassis for other purposes.

Sandwich is assessing the best options for using the 2009 chassis.
Among the options is use as a high water rescue vehicle
which can access flooded sections of town during major
storms.
Updated Jan 2019

Sandwich anticipates the new Forestdale Station 3 to open
in the Summer 2019. At that time, administrative offices will
move into the new station.

Apparatus reassignments are still being planned, but the initial
plan looks at keeping the following apparatus at the following stations.
STATION 1: Engine 1, Tower 1, Amb 1, Breaker 1, Forestry 468,
the Foam Trailer 4, boat, and support cars
STATION 2: Engine-Tanker 2, Tanker 1, and Ambulance 2,
as well as an officer vehicle.
STATION 3: Engine 3, a second engine, Ambulance 3, the Special
Incidents Unit, a forestry unit, Command Car, and support units.

It is yet to be determined where the potential Spare Engine and
2nd Brush Breaker will be assigned.
More to follow once the details are worked out.
Update Jan 2019

Tisbury recently took delivery of a new 2018 International 4x4  / KME
