The Sandy Springs City Council has approved spending $2.95 million to acquire three new apparatus for the Fire Department, completing a program approved by the council in 2018 to replace department vehicles put in service in 2008 and 2013. The order, placed with Ten-8 Fire and Safety Equipment of Georgia, consists of two Custom Pierce PUC pumpers; and one Pierce Ascendant, mid-mount platform, 100-foot aerial apparatus.
Two Quantum pumpers acquired in 2013 will be placed in reserve, as will the current Pierce platform vehicle at Fire Station No. 2, the city said.
“The Fire Department utilizes five pumpers and three aerials in citywide deployment,” the city said. “As the equipment is customized to fit the Fire Department’s needs, delivery of the new vehicles will take approximately 18 months.”
