New pumper improves fire service

 
 
 
The East St. Paul Fire Department has a new pumper that will improve the department's efficiency and provide better protection for RM residents.
 
The new truck is a 2019 eMax Typhoon Rescue Pumper manufactured by E-One Fire Trucks.  It is equipped with a high capacity pump capable of pumping 1,500 gallons of water per minute.
 
It has an 800-gallon water tank on board and can pump/create foam.  The pump is powered by a 400-horse power Cummins diesel engine with an Allison transmission.
 
The truck can carry a crew of up to six firefighters.  East St. Paul normally has four members on board.
 
The new truck is also equipped with a number of tools for fire suppression as well as the Jaws of Life.
 
The new truck has been in service since November, after local firefighters received training.
 
The department's previous pumper was 31 years old.
 
The top three types of response for the East St. Paul Fire Department this year are medical (181 calls), fire alarm system activated (49) and motor vehicle collisions (46).  The pumper responds to fire alarm and motor vehicle calls.
