Kinsman Township Fire Department - Tanker 33

Tanker 33

Tanker 33 is a 2003 International Tanker One Series.

Because there are no fire hydrants in our town, all of the water needed to put out fires has to be carried in by trucks like this. Tanker 33 carries 2,000 gallons of water and is equipped with a 1500GPM Darley pump. This vehicle can accommodate 2 people, one of which can wear an air pack. We carry an extra air pack and attack lines so that both people can fight a fire if necessary.

We use the tanker as a primary unit for all Mutual-Aid fires and a secondary unit for Kinsman Township.

Kinsman Township Fire Department - Rescue 33

Rescue 33 is a 1988 GMC American Eagle.

Our rescue truck is similar to others, but unique in its own way. With a 500 Gallon tank and a 750GPM pump, it can function like a pumper if needed, but carries enough equipment to handle many different rescue situations.

Because of the rural area that we protect, we also carry a variety of farm rescue equipment and a grain bin rescue device.

This rescue truck is primary to all motor vehicle accidents and rescue calls for Kinsman Township, and secondary to our surrounding areas.

Some of the equipment carried on this vehicle:

  • Hurst “Jaws Of Life”
  • Vehicle Stabilization Equipment
  • Pneumatic Airbags
  • Confined Space Rescue Equipment
  • Chain Saws
  • Hazmat Spill Equipment

Most of the incidents that we are called for as a fire department are EMS calls. Thanks to the residents passing the Fire & EMS levy in the fall of 2012, we were able to contract our EMS service with Johnston Township.
