TROY, NY – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the delivery of a new fire engine for the Troy Fire Department, the first of two new fire engines scheduled for deployment in 2019 and 2020 in the Collar City. The newest fire engine will be placed into service as Engine 1 at the Lansingburgh Fire Station in North Troy.
The purchase of new fire engines, ambulances, and personal protective gear is part of the Madden administration’s $1.73M multi-year local investment in the city’s fire service to strengthen the department’s firefighting capacity and enhance emergency response.
Mayor Madden said, “The City of Troy is fortunate to have a highly-trained and professional fire service that works tirelessly to protect our neighborhoods and community. My administration is pleased to secure the purchase and deployment of new fire engines and other critical emergency vehicles to support our department and firefighters to help keep Troy families, residents, and businesses safe.”
Fire Chief Eric McMahon said, “We appreciate the administration’s continued investment and commitment to support the Troy Fire Department. These new fire engines will help ensure the department has the tools it needs to effectively respond to fires and other emergencies not just in Lansingburgh, but throughout the community.”
Designed and built by Rosenbauer America, the fire vehicle is the Troy Fire Department’s first new fire engine since 2009. A second fire engine is scheduled for delivery in spring 2020. Previously, the City purchased two new ambulances in 2017 and 2018.
