The North Strabane VFD out of Canonsburg, PA, hired Toyne to engineer a new tanker for their department. Tanker 48, which is the third Toyne Tailored Apparatus to go into service for the North Strabane VFD, joins a fleet of 12 emergency vehicles.
Their new aluminum body tanker is outfitted with a Hale MBP 750 PTO pump, a 2000 gallon UPF tank, as well as a 2100 gallon portable tank rack. To light up the scene, North Strabane’s newest Toyne is also equipped with Fire Research telescoping lights. The apparatus was built on a Kenworth T370 2 door cab and chassis, and is powered by a Paccar PX9-380 engine, and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission.
Canonsburg, PA is located 18 miles southwest of Pittsburgh and was incorporated in 1802. The North Strabane Fire Department is comprised of career and volunteer firefighters who operate out of three stations and protect nearly 9,000 residents.
