New Fire Truck

Stratford Gazette

The Stratford Fire Department took delivery Monday of a one-year-old pumper truck which will replace a 1976 vehicle, the oldest truck in the department's fleet. The 2007 Spartan, manufactured by Rosenbauer Central States Division in Lyons, South Dakota, cost the department $437,000. The vehicle has a host of modern features from two phone systems to nozzle turrets on the front bumper which allow it to work like an airport crash truck. In fact, the diesel-powered truck will be housed at the department's station on McCarthy Road because of its proximity to the Stratford Airport. Other improvements over earlier trucks include better safety features for the firefighters and a much-improved scene-lighting package. Shown with the vehicle, from left, are firefighters Kevin Hare and Shawn McCormick, Captain Al Paul, Lieutenant Wayne Adair, Kyle Innis, of ResQTech Systems Inc. of Woodstock which handled the sale of the truck, Mayor Dan Mathieson,  Bernie Innis, of ResQTech, fire Chief Richard Young and deputy Chief Michael Gornyiczki.
