Fire Department gets 2 new trucks

The Iowa City Fire Department is home to two new fire engines, Iowa City Fire Department officials announced Monday.

The $810,000 used to buy the engines was part of the department budget’s capital-improvement plan, said Iowa City Fire Chief Andy Rocca.

One of the trucks will be housed at Station 2, 301 Emerald St., and the other at Station 3, 2001 Lower Muscatine Road.

The engines are equipped with the Pierce Ultimate Configuration, which features easier pumping operations as well as several safety features. The trucks each have a 1,500 gallon-per-minute pumping capacity and hold 750 gallons of water, as well as 30 gallons of firefighting foam, according to a release from the department.

Rocca said the department maintains seven engines, one aerial vehicle, and one rescue truck.
