Austin Fire Department's New Engine 45

Austin (Texas) Fire Department's NEW Engine 45
2009 Pierce Contender (Chasis actually a Pierce Saber)

Only one of these Engines being delivered one knows for sure what the four other Engines on order are going to be...with Austin tightening it's belt, and the Quantum's price over the value of a Contender, I think this might spell the end of Austin's Quantums if this Contender holds up.

I also maybe think this could have been an emergency purchase, I don't know if Engine 1 ended up being totalled or what. Maybe someone here has the scoop? Send me an email,
