PHOENIX, AZ (March 27, 2012) – RedSky Fire Apparatus is pleased to announce that Sun City Fire Department has purchased a new 1500-GPM, stainless steel pumper from Custom Fire Apparatus, Inc. of Osceola, Wis. The department placed the order in January 2012, and delivery is scheduled for June 2012.
“We were looking for a pumper with significant firefighting capability and compartmentation, combined with a roomy cab, great visibility and excellent maneuverability. Custom Fire was able to work with us to package this in a compact design with a short wheelbase and overall length,” explained Chief James Haner, Sun City Fire Department.
“We are very pleased to have earned this order from Sun City. They are a busy, urban department with a demanding response profile and a progressive view on firefighting with foam. This CustomFIRE urban pumper was optimized to meet all their performance needs, including a compact wheelbase, 500-gallon water capacity, two-stage pump, FoamPro 3012 / 200 cfm CAFS and lifetime warranty on the stainless steel body for a very reasonable investment,” said Jim Featherstone, RedSky president.
Continued Featherstone, “Thanks to Chief Haner, Battalion Chief Mike Thompson, and the Sun City Fire Board for their confidence in RedSky and Custom Fire.”
