A replacement pumper truck in Carling Township has been approved

Carling is investing in a pumper truck for the township.  At last night’s meeting, council voted in favour of Fire Chief Gord Harrison and staff to enter into negotiations with a company in Illinois for a 2012 truck that is a chassis with a tank built on to it.  Harrison told council that this is the preferred option as it comes with a vacuum pump instead of a gas pump which will fill faster, avoid clogging when pumping water from lakes, and prevent freezing on winter calls.  In addition, the truck and tanker are made of aluminum which he says will be easier to maintain and keep free of rust.  The asking price is about $240,000 Canadian.  The Fire Chief still has a couple more responses to receive about brand new vehicles and if one of those two seem like a better deal, he’ll inform council of that decision.
