Malden Fire Dept. Receives Custom Built New Engine and Ladder Truck

New Fire Truck

In June of 2019, Mayor Christenson committed to an investment of approximately $1.5 million to modernize the Malden Fire Department with the purchase of both a new Engine and Aerial Ladder. Recently, Mayor Gary Christenson, Fire Commissioner Emery Haskell and Chief of Department William P. Sullivan, as well as Malden Fire Department members, were present as the Malden Fire Department took delivery of the first of its newest piece of firefighting apparatus. The 2020 pumper, which will be assigned to Engine 2 located at the Central Fire Station, was built by the E-One Fire Apparatus Company. This “Typhoon” model pumper can distribute 1,500 gallons of water per minute. It carries 780 gallons of water in an on-board tank as well as over 2,000 feet of fire attack and water supply hose-lines and other firefighting and rescue equipment. It has been custom built by E-One, for the Malden Fire Department, based on specifications developed by a team of Malden Fire Department personnel.

This new pumper will replace a pumper that has served the city faithfully for the past 22 years. The training of fire department personnel on the capabilities and the operation of the new pumper will begin immediately and it is expected that this new pumper will go into full service within just a couple of weeks. “I’m extremely pleased to continue our commitment to the hardworking men and women of the Malden Fire Department with this investment” commented Mayor Christenson. “I want to thank our Finance Team, led by Controller Chuck Ranaghan and Director Ron Hogan, who continue to work tirelessly to put us in the position to make these investments. I also want to thank the City Council for their support of this request.” 

The delivery of the new 2020 aerial ladder truck, also built by E-One, is expected to occur in mid-January.
