Perkiomen Township Fire Company is pleased to announce that as of 1/31/2023 Pipeline 66 is now in service.
Pipeline 66 is a 1998 Pierce Saber pumper that was purchased used from the Wissahickon Fire Company in Ambler PA. The truck features a 1500 gallon per minute 2-stage pump, 6-man cab, a Detroit Diesel engine and roll up doors on both sides.
Pipeline 66 has been added to our existing fleet of apparatus to supplement the trucks we currently operate. This truck will help ensure that we are continuously ready to respond to any emergency in Perkiomen Township or a surrounding community.
The decision to purchase this truck was done in part due to the long wait times for new apparatus. We recently purchased a new Pierce rescue engine that we anticipate will be placed in service in the summer of 2025.
We would like to thank our friend at Wissahickon Fire Company for making the purchase an easy and enjoyable process.
