Long Description:
Went out in the evening to get some pix around the town and discovered the fire department outside washing and servicing the fleet. This, Engine 1, is the second in the line of wet trucks, a 1999 Freightliner FL80 pumper with a Fort Garry conversion. It carries a 1,000 gallon water tank and is capable of emptying that tank at a rate of 1,050 gallons per minute, meaning that, at full capacity, it could empty that tank in just over 57 seconds. This pumper has a transverse control panel, which, when first introduced, was a brilliant idea.

Fort Garry Industries began in 1919 and evolved into a manufacturer of fire fighting apparatus, producing the first Fort Garry fire truck sometime in the 1950s. Sold to an executive of the company in the early 2000s, the company was renamed Fort Garry Fire Trucks and is now in a new (2013) plant in Winnipeg, MB.
