After a unsuccesfull sale of the training apparatus, Engine 1R and Rescue 1R where traded in for a 1988/2003/2011 Mack CF Pumper/Tanker.
This rig was the former Tanker 1, replaced by a Freightliner M2 112 with Crimson body in 2012.
Equipped with a 2000 Gallon water tank, 500 gallon class a foan, 500 gallon class b foam , standard Engine company tools, hoses, 2 1500 gallon portable watertanks and a 1500 GPM pump its gonna act as a training/training/large scale incident rig.
It will be staffed if needed by off duty and volunteer crews.

Who did the 2003 and 2001 refurbs? Is it originally all Mack? Whatever the story, it is a nice truck. But you know I love Mack CF trucks. It is good to see some still kicking around.
Good questions LFM, here is some background info.
Tanker 1 was originally built in 1988 as a large volume pumper for an airport.
In 1999 it was sold to a volunteer fire department who sent it to E-One in 2001 for refurbishment, new pump, closed the cab and added a new deck gun.
In 2003 that FD's own shop refurbished the rig again installing a new bumper, all round lighting and added new lightbars.
At the end of 2009 the rig was retired and sold to a fire apparatus dealer.
SVFD bought it in 2010, refurbishing it yet againby their own shop.
New paint, red/blue emergency lighting, and a complete overhaul on the tank, pump, electrical systems and engine where given and added a trafficbar in the back, making it a bigger sized Engine 14.
It passed the acceptance tests easy, and is now temporary in second line service as a spare/training rig, but in the future when financial issues are resolved it will get a first line status with its own crew.
