Buckhorn Community Volunteer Fire Co. #1 takes delivery of Toyne Pumper

Buckhorn, PA (August 1, 2021) – The Buckhorn Community Volunteer Fire Co. #1 (BCVFC) is expanding its fleet with the firefighting versatility of a new pumper. Built and customized by Toyne, Inc., a leading fire apparatus manufacturer, the fire truck boasts nimble maneuverability, powerful pumping, and impressive storage options. This apparatus is the department’s first Toyne, and it’s ready to take the call.

Established in 1951, the BCVFC has served the Hemlock Township for 70 years. Today, they protect Hemlock’s 2,200 residents and provide mutual aid support for Madison Township, West Hemlock Township, and Mount Pleasant Township.

In addition to responding to fires, the fire company also responds to medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents, rescue calls, and hazardous materials incidents. The department manages seven apparatus and operates out of one station that was built in 2015. The fire department continues to enhance its effectiveness with the addition of its Toyne Tailored Apparatus.

Built on a Spartan Metro Star MFD chassis with a 10-inch raised roof, this Toyne Pumper is driven by a Cummins ISL9 450-horsepower engine and an Allison 3000 EVS transmission. The body is made out of bolted painted stainless steel and features many storage options from Toyne custom slide-out shelving and custom under step storage to SCBA bottle compartments in the wheel wells and rear slide-in ladder, pike pole, and hard suction storage.

This pumper is a strong firefighting force on the scene, equipped with a 1,750-gallon-per-minute Waterous CSU pump controlled by an FRC In Control 400 pressure governor and supplied by a 1,000-gallon UPF tank. The department’s apparatus is equipped with a Foam Pro 1600 Class A foam system with a 25-gallon foam cell for additional support.

“It was great working closely with the Buckhorn Fire Department to build their first Toyne Pumper,” said Bill Bird, Toyne Product Support Coordinator. “This pumper is customized to the department’s needs so they can better serve their community. We are excited to see the power behind this pumper in action and what it can do for the department.”

Emergency Apparatus Design from Columbia, PA, sold this Toyne Pumper to the BCVFC. As an Authorized Toyne Dealer, Emergency Apparatus Design serves fire departments throughout the region.
