Como VFD Has a New Fire Truck; Delivered Friday Afternoon

The Como Volunteer Fire Department has a new fire truck. A 1993 Seagrave Engine with 34,000 miles was delivered Friday afternoon. The truck, purchased for $10,000 from the Larchmont, New York Fire Department, is in great condition according to Hopkins County Fire Chief Andy Endsley. Endsley traveled to New York to test drive and put the truck through its paces. He said the unit has only been owned by the Larchmont Department until the purchase by Como was made. A new vehicle like this one would cost between $400,000 and $500,000.

The unit has a 1250 gallon-a-minute pump and a 500 gallon on board tank. Endsley said the City of Como has fire hydrants for in-town fires and there are tanker trucks available for rural fires they fight. Endlsey said the truck adds to the firefighting ability for the county as well as departments respond in aid to one another.

Larchmont, New York is a small town located 15 minutes outside New York City. Endsley said a truck that has been maintained as well as this one will provide many more years of service for Como and the area. Transporting the vehicle by truck to Hopkins County cost only $3250.

Endsley commended the Como Department and their Chief Roy Darby for the step taken in purchasing the truck. The purchase of the truck means there are now nine trucks of this size and capacity in the county. Endsley said other departments are looking for this type engine.
