Engine 21 was built by Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton Wisconsin in 2019. It is a twin to Engine 23. It is the result of a committee of fire district members working closely with the manufacturer with safety and functionality as the driving force. Engine 21 is powered by a 450 hp Cummins L9 engine. It has a 1500 gallon per minute pump, a 750 gallon water tank and a Husky 3 on board foam system. Upon completion, the engine was delivered by Pierce to Fire and Marine Incorporated in Springfield Ohio to have the compartments customized to fit the tools and equipment that we carry. The engine was delivered and placed in service in March 2020. The engine features back up and turn signal cameras, an aluminum hose bed cover to allow access to the four additional storage compartments on the top of the engine. It was designed with all LED lights to eliminate the need for a PTO generator. The pre-connect hose lines are stored in a slide out tray for reloading after use. Engine 21 is first out for structure fires and rescue calls in the north portion of the fire district, including the Kansas Turnpike, and carries a full complement of rescue tools, jacks, air bags, ropes and cribbing.
