Williamsburg Fire Department Adds Toyne Pumper Tanker to Apparatus Fleet
Williamsburg, IA (August 1, 2019) – Firefighters from the Williamsburg Fire Department welcomed the arrival of their new Toyne Pumper Tanker. This is the department’s fourth Toyne Tailored Apparatus. It will be taking the place of an older Toyne Pumper that has helped protect their fire district for more than two decades. Fortifying the department’s response capabilities, the new engine will serve the community alongside seven other apparatus.
The pumper tanker is mounted on a Spartan Metro Star LFD 10” raised roof chassis. Constructed with bolted painted stainless steel, the apparatus body is designed to withstand the elements. A Cummins ISL engine, capable of producing 450 horsepower, and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission combine to make an effective powertrain for emergency response.
Capable of moving water at 1,500 gallons per minute, Toyne fitted Williamsburg’s apparatus with a top-mount Hale Qmax pump. To meet pumping demands, 1,500 gallons of water is stored in a UPF tank. Further fire suppression capabilities take shape in the form of an Akron Hi Riser Monitor and on-board Foam Pro 2001 Class A foam system, which features a 25-gallon foam cell.
“Working with Dale and the Toyne team has been a great experience,” said Fire Chief Travis Heitman, Williamsburg Fire Department. “From working through the spec design phase to the apparatus build, everything went with relative ease! Also, being punctual on the build and having the engine early benefits the Williamsburg Fire District.”
With the desire to serve, the courage to act, and the ability to perform; volunteer firefighters of the Williamsburg Fire Department have been vigilantly severing their community of 3,100 for over 125 years. The department’s 31 volunteers not only protect life and property in Williamsburg but also work to provide mutual aid to eight other area fire departments. These firefighters respond to over 80 calls per year.
