STAR LAKE, N.Y. —  The Star Lake Fire District recently received a new Toyne pumper in the district’s blue-and-black color scheme.

The tailored pumper’s features include customized compartments equipped with roll-up doors, a swing-out tool board, and several in-compartment mounted tool boards, according to a news release. Firefighters can store six SCBA bottles and wheel chocks in dedicated compartments within the apparatus’ wheel wells.

At the back of the pumper, there is slide-in stowage for ladders, pike poles, and hard suction hose. Additional equipment can be placed in a rear compartment with a roll-out storage tray.

Star Lake’s new apparatus boasts a 1,000-gallon UPF tank and 1,250-GPM Hale Qmax pump. For additional support on the scene, the pumper is equipped with a Foam Pro 1600 Class-A foam system and a 25-gallon foam tank. The apparatus is also fitted with an Akron Stream Master monitor.

Toyne mounted the body onto a Spartan Metro Star LTD chassis. This apparatus is powered by a 450-horsepower Cummins ISL9 engine and an Allison 3000 EVS Transmission. The cab of the Metro Star has a 10-inch raised roof and a transverse EMS compartment with slide-out storage trays.

“We are honored to build Star Lake Fire District’s first Toyne Pumper,” said Bill Bird, Toyne product support coordinator. “Each delivery is special, especially a department’s first one. We can’t wait to see what the fire district does with their new Toyne.”
