Ceremony to Be Held for New East Granby Fire Tanker

Open House also will be held at East Granby Fire Department Station One.


In June of 2013, East Granby’s Legislative Body, the “Town Meeting” approved a capital expenditure of $341,000 to purchase and equip a new tanker for the Fire Department. The purchase is part of the Town’s ongoing capital improvement plan for vehicles and infrastructure. The new 2013 Kenworth vehicle is replacing a 1974 Brockway Tanker.  The new tanker will carry 3,200 gallons of water and meets all of the latest safety specifications and requirements.  70% of East Granby is on well water and does not have fire hydrants so the tanker is a vital component of East Granby’s public safety plan.

The Fire Department is planning a traditional “wet-down” ceremony and open house at Station One, located at 7 Memorial Drive by Town Hall.  The festivities will take place on Saturday, February 8th at 1 pm, weather permitting.  Light refreshments will be provided and all are welcome to attend.  For more information call the Selectman’s Office at 860-653-2576.
