New Pumper Tanker
Mon. Jan 13th 2020

Our apparatus committee completed the pre-construction of our new pumper tanker this evening. Over the last few months, the volunteers had met with several manufacturers on several occasions to review what was needed and expected. After an in-depth review, the committee had recommended Horrocks Fire and Rescue Apparatus with Rosenbauer America. As we recently posted in December, the Penn Forest Township Supervisors agreed to provide funds for not just one, but two apparatus that were needed in the township. Our Station #1 (District 12) was also in need of an engine. We again would like to thank the Supervisors and community for the overwhelming amount of support the last few months to make this project possible. This apparatus will be replacing our 1996 Semo/International tanker which had begun to show its age. Below we attached a drawing of the new tanker going into yesterday’s meeting. Additional modifications were made throughout the meeting so the picture is not exact but very close. Our 2020 Rosenbauer Commander Custom FX Pumper Tanker is expected to be delivered during the first quarter of 2021!
