North Lincoln Fire & Rescue’s newest firefighting vehicle, a “Heavy Rescue,” arrived Tuesday morning in Lincoln City on a flat-bed trailer from West Virginia by way of Alabama.

The Heavy Rescue, which has undergone refurbishing and repainting to meet NLFR District #1’s needs, was bought from a fire department in West Virginia and sent to an Alabama fire vehicle specialty shop for some refurbishing.

The tires were too old to meet national fire service safety standards, so new tires will be added to the rig by Les Schwab.

Division Chief Jamie Mason led a committee of firefighters to determine the “specs” for the rig, and found one that met NLFR’s needs for about $100,000. A completely new apparatus of this type, with equipment, would be around twice that amount, NLFR Fire Marshall Frederick E. Ulrich Jr. said.

The money came from the bond measure approved by NLFR voters in 2018.

  1. This heavy rescue truck came to you from the Virginia Beach Volunteer Rescue Squad 14 in Virginia Beach,Virginia. It served with pride for over 15 years to the citizens of Virginia Beach. Brand new this truck cost over 750,000 dollars and had a little over 250,000 dollars worth of equipment on it when it left Virginia Beach three years ago. It was with heavy heart that the volunteers who manned that truck let it go.
