Elizabethtown’s new fire engine passes muster

Staff report

ELIZABETHTOWN — The Elizabethtown Fire Department is one step closer to obtaining its new engine. Members of the fire department travelled to Nesquehoning, Pa., Monday for a final inspection.

“We were excited to see the finished product, and it has definitely met our expectations,” said Fire Chief Nick West.

The truck, which will carry 1,000 gallons of water and pump up to 1,500 gallons per minute, will leave Pennsylvania next week headed for the dealer in Sumpter, S.C. There, it will go through a final preparation process that includes an additional pump test, small equipment installation, detailing, and servicing.

The fire department expects delivery of the engine in approximately three weeks.
