Greeneville Fire Department purchases new rescue pumper truck

Greeneville new fire truck

The town of Greeneville has welcomed a 2023 Sutphen rescue pumper truck to the Greeneville Fire Department’s inventory. Used by the Ohio-based emergency services manufacturer as a demonstration vehicle, the new engine was made available to the Greeneville Fire Department at a 2021 price, saving the department an estimated $157,000. The town was able to use a nearly $650,000 Assistance to Firefighters Grants Program (AFG) grant to secure the truck. With the average build time for a new fire engine is roughly two to three years, Greeneville fire officials said they were glad to get a new truck sooner than expected. The truck will be housed at the recently opened Greeneville Fire Station No. 2 and will replace a 1985 Pierce engine with years of service to the department. The new engine has a 1,500 gallon-per-minute pump capacity. It holds 1,000 gallons of water and 30 gallons of foam.
