Discussion of vehicles topped the list of items discussed at the Rye Fire Protection District (RFPD) meeting on June 15, 2020. The department may soon have several new-to-them vehicles in the fleet. The City of Pueblo is giving them a 1992 Pierce Pumper structure truck which should be received before the end of June. It will have a four person cab and hydraulic ladder racks complete with ladders. The truck has been inspected and the pumps tested and found in good order. This truck will replace Engine 231. The Rescue truck has the engine repair completed and is back in service. Two cruisers have been received from Pueblo County and can be put into service as soon as the courthouse reopens and they can be registered. The Pueblo West Fire Department has changed to a program of leasing vehicles in their fire department and they are offering some of their previous supplemental fire vehicles for sale. Bennett discussed a Chevrolet Tahoe that they have for sale that he would like to purchase for the RFPD. The Tahoe is already set up with emergency lights, siren, and radio. The board voted to allow Bennett to make an offer to the Pueblo West Fire Department for the Tahoe. The Tahoe and the cruisers would be used as secondary vehicles to follow up on medical calls. This would save having to use a fire truck to accompany the ambulance. The smaller, less expensive vehicles will save wear and tear on the fire trucks, be less expensive to operate, and allow the fire trucks to be available in case of another emergency at the same time.
