Cosby-Helena Fire Protection District • New Engine

The Cosby-Helena Fire Protection District has placed into service a 2008 Pierce Saber with a 1500 GPM pump and a 1000-gallon tank. Engine 62 also has an onboard foam system and a hydraulic-powered generator. They purchased the engine from the City of Rochester Hills, Michigan Fire Department, where it previously served as their Engine 1. Firefighters have trained on driving and operation of the apparatus, and it represents a 13-year upgrade from the current engine at the department. Cosby-Helena has also implemented paperless reporting via iPads that were donated to the department. For more information and pictures, you can find them on Facebook @cosbyhelenafire.
