Delays in production and shipping require fire companies nationwide to plan and consider needs.
The Cranberry Township Volunteer Fire Company is no different, as leadership has been diligently working to determine the specifications for a potential replacement of the department’s 2008 rescue truck.
The replacement comes with a four-year lead time, making the then 20-year-old vehicle due for replacement. At the Feb. 1 Board of Supervisors meeting, the Company was authorized to purchase a 2028 Pierce Enforcer Rescue truck with an anticipated delivery date of 2028. This unit will become the primary rescue out of the Route 19 Fire Station once it is placed into service.
