Pierce XT for HRM

One of five Pierce Arrow XT rescue pumpers ordered by the Halifax Regional Municipality in 2010, this particular unit is assigned to Station#15, on Pleasant Street in Dartmouth. This morning however it was a Station#16 at Eastern Passage.

The rig carries a 500 gal tank and 1250 gpm pump and is fitted for rescue work.

The units are generally assigned to areas where multi-use is essential: Lower Sackville, Lakeview/Fall River/Windsor Junction, and Black Point. However one unit is also assigned to Second Street in Dartmouth.

Still identifiable as a Pierce, it is missing the small fixed window in the door that Pierce Arrow cabs had for many years.
