Rescue-Engine 66 ~ 2018 Pierce Arrow XT
Aug 20, 2014 - 6:11: AM

Lancaster Township Fire Department took delivery of a new Pierce
Arrow XT Heavy Duty Rescue/Engine on April 3, 2018 from Pierce Manufacturing of Appleton. Wisconson. It was placed into service June 3, 2018 at 6:10 p.m.


The cab has seating for 6 firefighters and a 10” raised roof. The unit features a Hale 2000 GPM single stage pump, 750-gallon water tank and three Crosslays. There are four Hydraulic Reels for pre-connected rescue tools.  Two are placed inside a driver side compartment and two inside the front 26” extended bumper to supply two pre-connected Amkus hydraulic rescue tools.


The color scheme of the new rescue rescue engine matches the 2015 Pierce Arrow XT Engine 66-1 which is white with red lettering and striping.


The sale of their 2006 rescue unit to New Brighton borough, PA in August of 2016 made it possible for LTFD to consolidate apparatus functions from two units, into one rescue-pumper and downsize their fleet.


When the new rescue/engine arrived, the current Engine 66-2, a 1993 Pierce Lance engine was placed out of service and sold.


Lancaster Township Board of Supervisors approved the purchase of the new rescue engine at their March 13, 2017 Board of Supervisors meeting.
