Decon 1 is a 2004 1 Ton Ford F350 that was received from the Taney County LEPC. The equipment on the truck is a partnership between LEPC, Branson Police Department and Branson Fire Department. The LEPC funds came from The Department of Homeland Security Grant Money. It’s main role is to function as an element of the HSRT with its main function being decontamination. It’s capability is to initiate minor haz-mat incidents.
Engine-3 is a 2003 K M E model GSO-5482 NFPA class 1 Pumper equipped with a 1500 G.P.M. pump with a 500 gallon poly tank. It is also equipped as a heavy rescue. Engine-3 is the first out apparatus for Station 3.
Tender-3 was acquired in 2002 through the Missouri Department of Conservation as a flat-bed military deuce-and-a-half. Branson firefighters designed and built this vehicle in-house for the purpose of fighting brush fires and transporting water. It has a 250 G.P.M. pump and a 1000 gallon tank. By building it in-house we saved roughly $100,000.
