Brush Fire - East Rd

Monday, April 21, 2014  Brunswick No. 1 responded to a fast moving brush fire today off East Rd in Brunswick Hills.  About 2 acres burned, but firefighters had to battle the quick moving fire on steep terrain with thick brush, downed trees and large limbs.  Eagle Mills assisted on the scene and Center Brunswick provided stand by coverage for both Brunswick No. 1 and Eagle Mills.  The fire was bought under control in about 2 hours. 

   


 

New Truck 4 almost complete

Wednesday, April 2, 2014  Brunswick No.1 Truck Committee members will be traveling to Ohio soon to inspect the new Truck 4.  Sutphen was chosen again to build Brunswick's new aerial platform.  The truck is a Sutphen SP70 model with a 70' platform capable of flowing 1500 gallons of water with a 1000 pound load capacity.  The truck is very quick to setup, normal setup time is only 20 seconds.  The chassis is a single rear axle, making the truck more maneaverable and will ride very similar to the pumpers in the fleet.  Check back for more pictures from our inspection trip on April 9th.  The new truck is expected early May 2014.
