Elmsdale Fire and Emergency Services - REVISED

Just outside the Halifax Regional Municipality is the village of Elmsdale, which operates its own four apparatus fire department. Today I managed to catch two of their pieces rolled out for work in the fire hall.
Located adjacent to a major highway they are often called out for MVAs, but Elmsdale is also a growing bedroom community with light industrial and rural zones.

Pumper/tanker 211 is a Spartan Metro Star with Metalfab body and equipped with a 1050 gpm pump and 1250 gal booster tank. Certification date is April 11, 2012.

Light Rescue Medical 232 is this GMC 3500 Z21 crew cab.

ADDITION From the Shoebox:

I dug out this 1986 photo of Elmsdales Rescue Unit No.2. A Ford F-700 with Wilson's body. (Wilson's of Truro, NS was a truck body builder, now out of business.)
