The North East Joint Fire District recently placed the District’s newest engine company in service, Engine 102. The 2019 Pierce Saber replaced the aging 1997 Spartan RD Murray that was taken out of service and declared surplus earlier this year. Engine 102 will be primarily housed at the North Station located on Phillips Road and will proudly be staffed by the dedicated volunteers of the Webster Volunteer Fire Department.
The Engine Apparatus Committee included Commissioner William Southwell, Assistant Chief Robert Boutillier, Lieutenant Steven Kozak and former Webster Firefighter Joel LoTurco. The North East Joint Fire District is in the midst of completing a well-structured apparatus standardization and replacement program, which when fully implemented, will standardize the District fleet and provide for apparatus replacement at a safe and reasonable interval.
