Camden County Fire Rescue Adds New Engine to Fleet

Camden County Fire Rescue is pleased to announce the latest addition to its fleet. A 2016 Freightliner Rescue Pumper, Engine 17, recently came into service for the residents of Camden County.

Purchased with SPLOST funds, the new engine will be housed at the north end of the county in Waverly at Station 17.

“We are very excited about this new engine,” said Camden County Fire Chief Mark Crews. “This vehicle replaces an older, more costly to maintain  engine that has served its purpose and will now fall into a back-up position with much less use.”

Engine 17 was purchased for $255,990 and is one of 17 new vehicles that has been added to Camden County Fire Rescue’s fleet since 2013. These vehicles, along with hydraulic stretcher lift systems, mark over $2.5 million in upgraded equipment for Fire Rescue in the last four years. 

Earlier in June, the Camden County Board of Commissioners approved the purchase of a new 4-door Pumper in an effort to continue to modernize Fire Rescue vehicles.  The new Pumper will be ready for deployment in 2018.
