FALCONER – A new fire engine will soon be hitting the streets in the Village of Falconer.
The Falconer Fire Department announced on Thursday their new engine has passed final inspection and will soon be outfitted with all the needed equipment.
Engine 401 sports a new paint scheme and brings what officials say is a much-needed refresh to the traditional department fleet.
The cabin will seat six interior firefighters in full self-contained breathing apparatus.
All hose lines are now pulled from lowered, rear hose beds, and a remote-control deck gun is also installed. The engine has a 750-gallon water tank that can pump 2000 gallons per-minute.
Additionally, a new battery operated “jaws-of-life” cutter and spreader is featured on the truck.
