[ARCHIVED] City Council Oks purchase of new fire truck

BEAUFORT, S.C. (Oct. 28, 2021)  –  The Beaufort/Port Royal Fire Department will be getting a new pumper truck in 2022.

City Council approved the purchase of a Pierce pumper truck at its Oct. 26 meeting. The purchase price was $948,928.

The truck is expected to be delivered in approximately 14 months. It will replace the current pumper at the Fire Department’s headquarters at 135 Ribaut Road. That truck, which is 10 years old, will go on reserve status, and the Fire Department will retire its two oldest pumpers, which date from 1995 and 1996.

Fire Chief Tim Ogden explained that trucks typically have a 10-year front-line life, and then are used for 10 years in reserve.

The City is financing its portion of the purchase price through Fire Department impact fees, which are levied on developers of new properties to help cover the cost of providing fire service. It has obtained a 10-year loan from Truist Bank (formerly BB&T Bank) at an interest rate of 1.72%
