The City of Scottsdale, Ariz., has placed four Pierce Impel pumpers on duty and purchased two more that will be delivered in April. The Scottsdale Fire Department (SFD) now maintains 23 Pierce apparatus in service or on order for delivery, according to the Pierce Manufacturing.

All six utilize the Pierce Ultimate Configuration (PUC) pump system.

“Our first Pierce PUC pumper was purchased in 2008. We carefully evaluated our apparatus specs at that time because of the many advantages the PUC offered our department,” said SFD Battalion Chief Chris Schibi, leader of the department’s apparatus purchasing committee. “The Impel chassis and PUC combination is an excellent fit for our department, and we’ve had positive feedback and input from firefighters to help us refine the apparatus specs over the years.”

SFD is an “all hazards” department that provides municipal fire protection, out-of-hospital emergency medical services, wildland firefighting, hazardous materials response, technical rescue response, and more. The department’s protection district includes a large urban interface that borders 24,000 acres of pristine desert land.
