Greeneville holds push-in ceremony for new fire trucks

Greeneville new fire trucks

Members of the Greeneville Fire Department and city officials held a formal push-in ceremony for two new fire engines at the city’s Station No. 2 on Carson Street. The new rescue pumper engine - designated Engine No. 2 - and mini-pumper truck will replace aging equipment. Both trucks were purchased largely through grant money and federal dollars. Engine No. 2 was purchased through a $609,600 Assistance to Firefighters grant from USDA with a town match of $95,400 for the engine. The 2023 Sutphen Corp. Model can accommodate six firefighters, has a 1,000-gallon water tank, 30-gallon foam tank, and 2,000-gallon-per-minute pump capacity. The mini-pumper truck was purchased through a CBDG grant and isa Ford F-550 chassis with a pump that has a capacity of 1,500 gallons-per-minute. The mini-pumper carries 310 gallons of water and 20 gallons of Class A foam, used to extinguish materials such as wood, paper, brush and wildland vegetation. Fire Station No. 2 itself is a recent addition, opening its doors in April early this year.
