FIREMATIC HISTORY

Ladder 1 - 1990 Ford C/KME FireStix 55’/1250 gpm/350 gal.

Entering service in 2005, this rig originally served Oslo Township, Indiana.

Tanker 1 - 2004 Freightliner 120/US Tanker 500 gpm/3500 gal.

Serving a rural response area, Bristol operates a total of three tankers - in addition to Tanker 1, they also respond with a 1984 S&S 2500 gallon and a 1983 Ford L/Bluegrass 3500 gallon tanker.

While at first glance at this vehicle, one might think that Bristol has experienced severe budget cuts, however, this is not the case. Designated “10-50” (the radio ten code for an auto accident), this rig has been driven by several members in demolition derby events held during county/state fairs.

Special thanks to FF/EMT Scott Genslinger, FF Cameron Poff and FF/PM Mike David for their assistance in positioning the apparatus for photos and providing background information on the department’s operations.

Bristol VFD serves a 42 square mile suburban/rural response area encompassing the Town of Bristol, York and Washington Townships including Interstate 80. Operating as a combination department, 7 career and 20 volunteer members provide Fire, Rescue and EMS protection answering an average of 800-1,000 alarms annually.
