New for 2021
The Crescent City Fire Department has added a new road vehicle to its fleet. It's a 2010 Pierce Commercial Fire Engine that will allow us to serve our community more safely and efficiently. This "newer" engine has replaced the department's aging 1999 Fire Engine that was repurposed to another station in Putnam County.
This newer Fire Engine has a larger pump and can hold 1,000 gallons of water with an on-board foam system, exterior scene lighting for lighting up night scenes, a pre-plumbed bumper hose line for quick deployment, a remote control master stream device with headsets for hearing protection, and a backup safety camera.
The new engine was attained with the assistance of the Putnam County Director of Public Safety Keith “J.R.” Grimes.
