Berwick Welcomes Two New Toyne Apparatus
The Berwick Fire Department in Berwick, Maine welcomed two new additions to its fleet in late December with a holiday-themed entrance. The new, identical pumpers were engineered by Toyne, a premier fire apparatus manufacturer, and are equipped with technology that will upgrade the department’s fire-fighting capabilities.
Toyne built Berwick’s newest fire apparatus on Spartan Metro Star MFD 10-inch chassis with the power of Cummins ISL 450 horsepower engines. The fire trucks include 3000 Allison EVS transmissions, and boast the fire-dousing ability of 1200-gallon UPF tanks with Hale Q-Max 1500 gpm pumps.
The apparatus also include Fire Research telescoping lights, and will bolster the on-scene effectiveness of the Berwick Fire Department. The department, which is a combination of career and on-call personnel, receives around 900 calls a year.
“Our team is proud to have built these new pumpers for the Berwick Fire Department,” said Michael Schwabe, president and CEO of Toyne, Inc. “We ensure quality in all of the apparatus we build, and we know that these will be great additions to the department and a tremendous help to the first-class firefighters serving in Berwick.”
Berwick is located in southern Maine near the New Hampshire border, with a population of around 7,000 people. The department was in the spotlight recently, with two of its firefighters receiving the American Legion Department of Maine’s 2017 Firefighter of the Year award.
Berwick’s new apparatus were sold by Eastern Fire Apparatus, located in Milton, New Hampshire. The Toyne-authorized dealership serves New Hampshire and Maine for most fire and rescue equipment needs, from mechanical services to new apparatus sales.
