Chief 2-60
The command vehicle is a 2006 Ford Expedition.  The command vehicle is used by the Chief, or officer in charge, to respond directly to scenes and coordinate the incident.  The vehicle is equipped with numerous radios, tools, and pre-plans, along with a custom fire service cabinet which includes a workspace for the officer to coordinate the incident.

Communication is critical for any incident.  The truck is equipped with several radios covering VHF Low Band, VHF High Band, and Ultra High frequencies.  This allows us to communicate with all of our mutual aid and monitor the fireground effectively. 

The unit is also equipped with a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), spare air bottle, forcible entry tools, water extinguisher, medical kit, oxygen, defibrillator, portable radios, lights, and accountability supplies. 

This vehicle was purchased entirely with fire company funds, including money raised from fundraising such as the pancake breakfasts and annual fund drive.

Utility 2-8
The newest addition to our fleet is a 2011 Ford F350 Utility Body.  The body was custom designed by members of the fire company to best suit our needs.  The body was built by Transtar Truck Body & Welding of Califon, NJ.  Emergency Lighting and Radios were installed by Spectrum Communications, Kenvil, NJ.  Graphics were designed and applied by Ultimate Alphabet, Kenvil, NJ.  The truck was purchased to assist with public service calls, traffic assists, and personnel transport.  The truck carries medical equipment, forcible entry tools, ropes, cones, flares, fire extinguishers, cribbing, among other supplies.  Shortly after placing it in service, the truck responded to dozens of public assistance calls during the flooding incidents of 2011.

The truck was purchased entirely by fundraising efforts including the yearly fund drive, pancake breakfasts, and coin tosses.  The members of Fairmount Fire are extremely grateful to the residents of Washington & Tewksbury Township for making this truck possible.
