In 2017, the Shawnee Heights Fire District placed two pumper/tankers, built by Toyne Fire Apparatus on heavy duty Kenworth T800 chassis, into service. The new multi-purpose apparatus were custom designed by a committee of Shawnee Heights firefighters and were intended to take the place of several aging, single purpose tanker trucks. The pumper/ tankers are equipped with 1,250 gallon per minute fire pumps, carry 3,000 gallons of water, have hydraulically driven electrical generators installed and carry all required loose equipment to be meet class A pumper standards. The trucks are equipped with 3,500 gallon portable water tanks and three large, remotely operated valves (one on each side and one on the rear) that allow the 3,000 gallons of tank water to be quickly emptied into a portable water supply tank at a fire scene so that the truck can drive to a water source, refill the tank and return with water to the fire scene. The pumper/tankers also carry four Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA) to protect firefighters along with specialized tools that can be used by a Rapid Intervention Team (RIT) if they need to rescue a trapped firefighter inside a structure fire.
