Engine 2 to Make Its Debut at May 10 Public Event

April 30, 2014 at 9:15 AM

SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Fire Department is hosting a barbecue celebration to dedicate its new apparatus -- Engine 2 -- May 10, from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., at 396 Broad Street.  

The dedication and blessing will take place at 11 a.m., and there will be a children's hose target practice area, an engine "wet down", and hot dogs and hamburgers fresh off the grill.

The pumper was delivered in late December, but members were busy mounting existing equipment, and receiving training for the next three months.  
According to Summit Fire Chief, Joseph Houck,  "This custom pumper was designed by a ten-member project team led by Battalion Chief Wayne Smith.  The project team spent well over a year researching a piece of apparatus best suited to serve the residents and visitors of the City of Summit."  
Houck added, "These firefighters spent hundreds of hours both on and off duty researching the vehicle, then developing a comprehensive bid document detailing every item from the engine and transmission to the LED lights.  The project team members met with the successful bidder and engineer assigned to the project to ensure that everything was built according to their specifications.  Three project team members attended a mid-construction conference, followed by a final inspection prior to delivery."

Houck also stated that the vehicle purchase would not have been possible without the support of Summit's elected officials, residents, and businesses.
The project team members included:

Battalion Chief Smith – Project Team Leader

Deputy Chief Evers

Lieutenant Hudkins

Lieutenant Imbimbo

Lieutenant Evers

Firefighter Mullen

Firefighter Iannella

Firefighter Dorko

Firefighter Pignatello

Firefighter Harnois

To RSVP for the dedication event, contact Nancy Fabrizio at 908 / 277-9358, or via e-mail at nfabrizio@cityofsummit.org.  Residents are asked to RSVP by May 5.
