Squad 58 - 2002 Ford Expedition

Also acquired through government surplus, Squad 58 is utilized for manpower transport.

Brush 58 - 1990 Ford F-350 4x4/Reading/KME 180 gpm/225 gal.

Acquired through government surplus, this rig began life as a military P-20 twin agent crash truck equipped with a chemical skid unit. Already painted Lime/Yellow, Rawlinsville simply added a pump panel, mobile radio & wheel covers to convert this rig to meet their needs.

Organized in 1952, Rawlinsville provides Fire, Extrication & Water Rescue services to a 70+ mile response area encompassing Martic, Providence, Drumore and East Drumore Townships. Forty active volunteers including members of the Amish farming community they serve answer an average of 300 alarms annually.

Seating six (5 with SCBA), it is equipped with four pre-connects, 400’ of 3” supply line, 1,000 of 5” LDH and 500’ of 1” forestry hose.
