The City of New Brunswick has put into commission a brand-new firetruck to assist the New Brunswick Fire Department with their daily calls for service around town.
Engine 1 is a Ferrara-brand pumper truck that can hold 1,750 gallons of water and up to 25 gallons of foam for automotive fires. It is also fully equipped with 1,000 feet of supply line and full EMS capabilities. It is stationed at fire headquarters on Joyce Kilmer Avenue.
This new truck serves as a replacement to the prior Engine 1 truck, which will now be kept in reserve at the Engine Company #2 firehouse on Burnet Street.
