Below is a note that will be included in the Township Newsletter that will be sent to all Fairview Township residents.
Fairview Township took ownership of two new Pierce Arrow XT engines within the last 60 days. A committee of the volunteer firemen spent nearly 1 year to spec out and prepare for the construction of the new apparatus. The two engines each carry 750 gallons of water, have 2,000 GPM pumps, foam and rescue systems. The two engines have a combined cost of nearly $1,400,000.00 which was financed over a three year period by the Township.
The engines are designed to respond to fires and rescues in Fairview Township. One engine will be stationed at the 340 Lewisberry Rd Station and the other at the 520 Locust Rd Station.
The engines have the latest in safety equipment for the volunteers and fuel efficiency built in. New lighting and warning systems enhance the fire departments ability to respond to all locations in Fairview Township.
Township residences are reminded that the Fairview Township Volunteer Fire Department is seeking members to fight fires, work as fire police, and other activities in Fairview Township. The volunteer Fire Department founded in October 1954 just celebrated their 60th anniversary of serving residents of Fairview Township and the surrounding area.
The two new engines replaced 2 Darly Spartan engines acquired in 1994 which will be sold.
