Welcome to Sunbury Volunteer Fire Department, Station 40!
Responding from Station 1, Engine 40 is a 2004 E-One pumper on an International chassis. It has a 1500 GPM top mount pump, carries 100 gallons of water, 4 SCBA packs and 4 spare bottles. Onboard is also 1000 feet of 5-inch line, a Holmatro rescue tool and other equipment. We recently put new MSA 4500 psi air packs on all of out trucks.
Truck 43 is housed at Station 1 and serves as a multipurpose transport truck as needed. It is a 1969 Ford F100 (with 9,000 actual miles) and started out life in the department as our brush truck. A rusted out tank and fear of overloading it eventually resulted in its retirement as an active fire apparatus. It now is referred to as the Chief’s Truck and is used in parades and special events. It is checked out, started and driven every week along with the rest of our apparatus.
Station 4 - Corapeake (2006)
Station 2 was built in 2006 in neighboring Corapeake. Units out of both stations respond on each call until they are cancelled by an officer on scene as needed. Both bays on the left are drive through, while the one on the right is only half the depth of the building. Engine 70 and Truck 72 are housed in the far left bay and Tanker 71 is in the center bay. Brush Truck 73 is housed in the right bay. Check back for pictures and a description of Truck 73.
Truck 72 is a 1984 Pierce pumper with a 1250 gpm pump mounted on an International chassis and carries 750 gallons of water. This unit was our first line pumper until replaced in 2004 with Engine 40. Now it is the equpiment truck responding from Station 2 and carries an exhaust fan, Pheonix rescue tool, and other equipment.
