In 2006 we took delivery of our newest engine, a 2003 American La-France Eagle. Formerly known as Engine 41 of Mount Pleasant V.F.C., Mount Pleasant, PA; Engine 18-1 has a 6 man cab, with a 2000gpm single stage pump, and a 1250gal. poly-tank. The engine also sports two 30gal Foam Tanks with an in-line foam induction system and a 10" rear gravity feed dump. This Engine serves as our primary, first out apparatus responding to Automatic Alarms, Structure related calls, and Vehicle Fires.
This is the same engine as Mount Pleasant Twp. VFC Engine 41.
In 2013 we took delivery of our newest piece of apparatus, a 2004 International 7300 / 4 guys All-wheel drive Attack Engine. Formerly known as Engine 23-2 of Avondale V.F.C., Avondale, PA; this newer Engine took the place of our aging American LaFrance (Old Engine 18-2). New Engine 18-2 has a 5 man cab, with a 1000 gpm pump, and a 625 gal. poly-tank. It also sports 6" draft/intake capability on all 4 sides of the truck, a Zico power ladder rack, 200' booster reel, 7500 watt generator, and 1200ft of 5" LDH. This Class A Attack/Engine is an excellent crossover piece, serving as a secondary fire attack apparatus, Primary vehicle accident apparatus, an excellent water supply unit, and with its off road characteristics and high ground clearance it has proven to be vital in wildland applications. The Engine recently received its transfer from Engine 18-1 to become a QRS response unit.
Brush 18 is a 1993 Ford F-350 4x4 with a Reading Utility Body, 500gpm pump, and a 220gal. poly-tank. Aside from the truck and body this unit was fully built by the members of the company. Placed into service late 1993, the brush has served as primary apparatus for all brush fires, and medical assists in William H Kain County Park. It is also certified as a Quick Response Service Unit, and serves as our secondary unit for water rescue responses.
The latest addition to our fleet is a 2003 Freightliner/American La-France, Medic-Master. In late 2011 it was decided, due to the upcoming regulations for water rescue certification in the Commonwealth, the 1995 Ford E-350 Ambulance was no longer adequate for our needs. The members decided to purchase a newer ambulance body, which was delivered in early January and placed into service early spring 2012. WRV-18 serves as our primary water rescue response vehicle, carrying all of our required equipment for water rescue, generator, lights, portable pump, and some rehab equipment. This unit also serves as the primary unit used to pull 1 of 2 boat trailers. Along with one of the boats, WRV-18 responds anywhere in the York or surrounding counties for water rescue.
Boat 18-1 is a 1990 Avon 10' inflatable with a 9.9 HP Mercury short shaft motor. This Boat has served since 1990 as our first boat covering Lakes Redman and Williams. When the membership decided to upgrade our status as an accredited water rescue company within the commonwealth, we decided to purchase a used 1997 Zodiac 13' inflatable and trailer it with the Avon. Boat 18-2 has a 40 HP Yamaha motor with helm drive. Both boats serve as our primary swift water rescue boats, with Boat 18-2 crossing over as the secondary boat for river and still water/lake responses.
Boat 18-3 is a 2007 Lowe modified-v bass boat, which was adapted by the members for water rescue. This boat has a 50 HP Mercury motor with helm drive and a 50 lb. trolling motor. A flip-down dive/recovery platform was added to the front of the boat and it also boasts multiple work lights for night operations and the ability for underwater camera operations, and firefighting operations (with the addition of a portable pump). Boat 18-3 serves as our primary boat for all river or still water/lake responses.
