Roll out at Station 4

There was a roll out at Station 4 today as firefighters carried out some maintenance in the engine bays.
Station 4 has one engine company based there and its two other bays host a rotating selection of apparatus.
Spartan Metro Star/ Carl Thibault 11-530E is one of the newest engines in the Halifax Regional Municipality Fire + Emergency Service, part of the large order from 2011 and delivered in 2012. It is a rescue pumper, with a 1250 gpm pump and 500 gal booster tank.

The other two units seen today are amongst the oldest serviceable pieces of HRM apparatus, and all are in spare status. Engine 92-76E is a Spartan/Fort Garry, 1050 gpm pump / 600 gal booster. It has a rear access cab, and centre mounted controls.

Third visitor is Spare Quint, Emergency-One, 90-57Q. It has a 1050 gpm pump and 500 gal booster along with the 75 foot aerial ladder.

Next week there may be another selection of interesting units.
Station 4 is located on Duffus Street, and serves the far north-end of the Halifax peninsula.
