Glade Creek Volunteer Fire Department

Equipment

We have a total of six trucks that responds to emergency calls within the fire district.

Of those six trucks, they are:

 

Pumper 701 responds to all calls involving traffic accidents, fires, and it's usually the first to arrive on the scene.  It can pump 1000 gallons per minute with five hoses connected at the same time.  Not only pumping water, it has the ability to haul a limited amount to the scene.

 

 

  

 

 

 

Pumper & tanker 702 can pump 1,500 gallons per minute and have seven hoses connected at the same time.  Not only pumping water, it has the ability to haul 1250 gallons with it's onboard tank.  This is usually the second truck to arrive on the scene.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tanker 707 is made specifically for hauling water.  It delivers 1,000 gallons per load to help replinish a temporary tank that's setup at each scene.  This truck is a vital unit to help extinguish structure fires.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Brush trucks 704 & 705 mostly respond to small woodland & grass fires.  They are equipped with rakes, shovels, chainsaws, and other utensils for fire fighting. This truck also provides support to the North Carolina Forestry Service.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Support truck 706 is the newest addition.  It carries all related equipment involving rescuing, reviving, and/or resistating anyone on the scene.  That includes firefighter gear, jaws of life, flashlights, and it can refill air packs that firefighters use to rescue people from fires.
