Arriving in the Great Lakes region were two identical Toyne Pumpers. Their final destination, the Georgetown Township Fire Department (GTFD) in Jenison, Michigan. These apparatus are fully equipped and customized to the department's specific needs and the communities they serve.
The twin pumpers' bodies are made with bolted painted stainless steel. The designs called for a large variety of dynamic storage and utilitarian solutions. Spacious compartments and ROM painted roll-up doors line both sides of the apparatus. In these compartments, Toyne added their custom slide-out shelving and tool boards.
There is enough dedicated wheel well storage space for 11 SCBA bottles. Upper body coffin compartments and custom under-step storage increase the overall carrying capacity. Toyne mounted the stall-built bodies on the Spartan Metro Star ELFD chassis with a 20-inch raised roof. Powering the two apparatus is a 450-horsepower Cummins ISL9 engine and Allison 3000 EVS transmission.
Equipped to answer the call, both Toyne tailored apparatus boast a 1,000-gallon UPF tank, a 1,500-gallon-per-minute Waterous CSUC pump, and foam pro 2002 Class A foam system with a 30-gallon tank. On the left-side pump, the panel is a 2.5-inch discharge, 4-inch discharge, 2.5-inch intake, and master intake. The right-side pump panel features a 2.5-inch discharge, 4-inch discharge, and master intake.

Georgetown's apparatus is wired up with a full suite of lights, including an FRC max-S 28K light brow, Whelen warning lighting, FRC LED scene lighting, Whelen LED arrowstick, and ILI LED strip lighting for the compartments. Protecting an area of 33 square miles and a booming population of nearly 50,000 residents, the Georgetown Fire Department has always been committed to improving its services.
Highly specialized apparatus
On average, the department responds to over 500 incidents per year. This requires a dedicated team of 57 firefighters that operates out of three stations. The set of Toyne-tailored pumpers ensure that the GTFD can answer the call.
"Being able to deliver both of these highly specialized apparatus to the Georgetown Township Fire Department is something our team is proud to do," said Mike Schwabe, President of Toyne, Inc. "We know both pumpers will serve the department and their community well–for years to come." Authorized Toyne Dealer, The Fire Company, sold the set of pumpers to the Georgetown Township Fire Department. Located in Allendale, Michigan, this dealer serves fire departments throughout the Great Lakes area.
