UPCOMING BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEETING DATES: June 7 & 21

NEW PUMPER AND AMBULANCE

The Sylvania Township Fire Department will place orders for a new fire pumper and an ambulance, based on recent approval by the township trustees

Deputy Fire Chief Chris Nye said the Sylvania Township Fire Department had hoped to have the new pumper on duty later this year, but officials were told that what was usually a 10-11 month wait from the order until delivery is now a wait of up to 15 months.

Chief Nye said he then checked with the ambulance company and found that delivery of those vehicles, which had been less than 200 days, is now a wait, “of at least 300 days.”

He said the manufacture of the equipment has been slowed due to the pandemic and that now has upset the department’s equipment replacement schedule.

Nevertheless, the needed equipment will be ordered and will be put in service as soon as they are available.

The pumper will be purchased from Sutphen, of Dublin, O,, for $624,474 and the ambulance will be purchased from Horton Emergency Vehicles, of Grove City, O., for $346,997.
