FIRE DEPARTMENTS NEW ADDITION

Fire Departments Newest Addition Has Arrived
This February, Roy City Fire Department took delivery of a new Fire Engine to replace Engine 32. The new engine is a Rosenbauer Commander and was built in Minnesota. The Roy City Fire Department provides fire, emergency services and all hazard response to the City of Roy and surrounding communities. This new engine was designed and built with the needs of our community and these services as priorities.
The life of a fire engine is approximately 10-15 years and our old engine was 14 years old and had reached its life span. This new engine is fully contained and enclosed for equipment storage, has advance safety features, updated technology, and was designed with environment protection and longevity in mind. It has a 2000 gallon per minute pump, holds 750 gallons of water on board with a 30 gallon foam tank. It’s a clean diesel with Green Star Technology that decreases engine idle time and helps to protect the environment and decrease fuel consumption. This fire engine took over a year to build and is expected to last 15 years. It will be staffed 24/7 with cross trained Firefighters, EMT’s and Paramedics.
We are currently in the process of changing over equipment and training our firefighters on it before we will place it in service around the middle of March. The Roy City Fire Department is appreciative to the citizens and very excited to operate and provide service in this new fire engine. The Roy City Fire Department strives to provide excellent service to the community and stay progressive in its approach.
During the month of March, the Roy Fire Department will be doing meet and greets in the community. We invite the public to come out and take a close up look of their new fire truck, Engine 32. On March 16, 2019 from 10-11am E32 will be at the Roy Branch Weber Library and again on March 23, 2019 at Kent’s Market from 10-11am. We look forward to seeing you.
As a safety reminder, working smoke alarms and home fire escape plans help save lives. Please take the time to make sure yours are working and have new batteries. Also, have and practice a home escape plan with your family with two ways out of every room with a designated meeting place outside. We encourage everyone to be safe out there.
