Engine 23 was built by Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton Wisconsin in 2019. It is a twin to Engine 21. 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 23 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 early April 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 23 is first out for structure fires and rescue calls in the southwest portion of the fire district, including the US Highway 75, and carries a full complement of rescue tools, jacks, air bags, ropes and cribbing.
