The members of the North River Fire Department would like to announce the arrival of Engine 3 all thanks to the tremendous support we received from the Island Community as well as the media supporting us during our Chase the Ace fundraiser.
Engine 3 arrived on the evening of Friday 18th,
and Firefighters started on the new apparatus right away! The new truck is slated to go into service sometime this week.
Engine 3 is replacing a 1987 model that was also custom built for the Fire Dept. and has since been sold to a small Fire Dept in North Dakota.
New Engine 3 was build in Centerville N.B. by Metfab Fire Trucks and came at a price of $518,000 which was fully paid by our Chase The Ace fundraiser!
