“Replacing [our previous truck], Rescue 3, with a rescue engine is a radical change for us, and in some ways marks the end of an era for Moyers Corners,” said Moyers Corners Fire Chief, Ed Wisnowski. “Engine 32 will allow for more efficient responses to many types of emergencies, while still providing the same level of exceptional service our community has come to expect. It also will reduce our fleet cost over the long run, which helps keep our financial commitment to the taxpayer.”
With a full line of custom and commercial pumpers, Spartan offers unique safety features and innovations to better support fire and rescue teams. Designed specifically to improve performance and extend vehicle life, Spartan’s rescue pumper offers a stainless-steel tubular body, and the Vibra Torq body-mount system which delivers a smoother, more responsive ride.
“We pride ourselves on being the most reliable rescue manufacturer in the industry. When lives are at stake, emergency responders from towns like Moyers Corners have split seconds to ensure a solution is realized,” said Todd Fierro, President of Spartan Emergency Response. “Our advanced design, engineering and manufacturing acumen ensures our units exceed the needs of the departments and the communities they serve.”
The largest fire industry rescue and EMS expo in the Northeast, the NYSAFC Annual Conference and Expo offers fire chiefs classroom education programs, training opportunities, and exhibit space for apparatus displays.
