Whale of a Pumper

Classed as a pumper this newest unit of the Halifax Regional Municipality Fire and Emergency Service, looks more like an aerial truck (which is certainly is). However the identification number is 09-498 P because it has pumping capacity, unlike some aerials, which only rely on pumpers to supply them with water.
It is a brand new Emergency-One, only recently delivered. (The "09" refers to the year in which it was purchased.)
I caught it at Morris and Queen Street doing some familiarizations. It does not appear to be in service yet, since it has no station number applied.

  1. The P is actually for Platform not pumper. It has 1750 GPM pump, 300 gallon tank amd a 114' Bronto Platform.
