New Pumper for Grand Forks Fire Rescue

The RDKB has approved the purchase of a new pumper for Grand Forks Fire Rescue.

The Rosenbauer Triple Combination Pumper from Rocky Mountain Phoenix is worth close to 540-thousand dollars and it's expected to be delivered in 2020.

The new engine will allow the area to maintain Fire underwriters Survey requirements and the current fire grade rating.

It will also allow Grand Forks Fire Rescue to maintain the equivalent to fire hydrant supply status which reduces insurance cots for residents.

The current engine will serve as back up.
