Firefighters from Seminole Fire Rescue check out the city’s new Pierce Impel fire engine.
SEMINOLE – For the next few weeks, city of Seminole firefighters will be learning about a new piece of equipment.

Engine 29, a 2013 Pierce Impel is due to be placed into service the first of February. The $377,000 truck is a new generation of green fire apparatus that leaves a very small carbon footprint. Disappearing are the days of trucks belching dark smoke. The new truck actually cleans its own exhaust, emitting only water and nitrogen into the atmosphere.

Engine 29 will be housed at Fire Station 29, 11195 70th Ave., and will respond as an advanced life support unit with fire-medics and EMTs on board.

Equipped with a compliment of ALS and fire equipment, the new engine can pump 1,250 gallons of water per minute from a 500-gallon water tank and a 40-gallon foam tank. Built to new National Fire Protection Association standards, the new engine features LED lighting, a computer terminal for receiving incident information and state-of-the-art technology that will permit firefighters to respond efficiently to scene situations.

Residents can get a first-hand look at Engine 29 Sunday, Feb. 10 when it will be featured at the annual city of Seminole Fire Rescue open house from noon to 3 p.m. at Station 29.
