NOW SERVING FLORENCE
The Florence Volunteer Fire Department, has recently purchased and put into service, a new Water Tender. This water tender carries 3,000 gallons of water, and pumps 750 gallons a minute. The new truck is built on a 2013 Kenworth chassis, with a gross vehicle weight of 54,600 pounds. It has a Paccar diesel engine with 380 horsepower, and automatic transmission. The new water tender also has two front spray nozzles, three dump valves, high side compartments allowing for amble storage of equipment, a dump tank, extra scene lighting, hose reel and a pre-connected hose line. The addition of this new unit, will allow FVFD to bring vitally needed water to fires quicker and in greater quantity at one time. This apparatus was purchased through monies allocated in the recent voter approved mill levy, and we want to thank our community for their continued support.
