This year, HTVFC is excited to announce the renovation of Station 15. EMS crews are staffed 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We are also staffed by firefighters when weather or other events may call for quick responses from additional crews. Our current station was designed with a different operational tempo that existed twenty years ago. The need for fire and EMS emergency services has evolved as the number of fire and EMS responses have increased over the years placing more demands on staff and facilities. We are upgrading our station to insure that we are appropriately structured to support emergency responses for the next 15 to 20 years.
We are also in the process of building a new ladder truck, which we hope to take possession of by the end of the year.
The new 1521 will be a 2015 Spartan ERV 100′ Mid Mount Platform with a six man cab. It will have a 250 gallon tank with a 2000 gallon per minute, single stage, Waterous Pump. Stay tuned, we will be posting pictures as we receive them.
