The fire company would like to invite everyone to our May 4th housing event. This is a celebration of the arrival of our newest piece of fire apparatus. A housing is a fire service tradition that we have not done at the Jefferson Fire Co. in 27 years. We felt like now is the time to celebrate the arrival of this new type of fire apparatus. We have never had an aerial device and we are excited to display this new equipment and all of our equipment to members of the community we serve!
Please join us May 4th, noon to 4pm, to see the housing, check out or apparatus, see and feel the equipment we wear and use, enjoy face painting, moon bounce, food, and fun!

At 1100hrs on February 5, 2013, Quint 46 was placed in to service. The Quint is a 2012 Rosenbauer 78′ Viper EXT ladder/pumper combination. The truck carries a 500 gallon water tank, several preconnect attack lines of various lengths, a 20 gallon foam tank, a Waterous 1500gpm pump, the Rosenbauer EZ Foam System, hydraulic rescue tools, and additional firefighting equipment. The Quint will typically be our first out piece of apparatus unless the call type would require additional rescue equipment carried on our Squad. Below are some photos of training from before the Quint was placed in service.
