Utility 27 In-Service - Station 27
Thursday, March 1, 2012

The Cochranville Fire Company has placed a 2012 Ford F-350 in-service as Utility 27.  The truck was purchased from New Holland Ford (New Holland) through Pennsylvania's CoSTARs program.  A spray-in bed liner was added by Groff's Steel (Quarryville) to protect the bed.  To give the truck Cochranville's unique gray over red look, Joseph's Auto Body (Cochranville) painted the top of the cab gray.  For storage, Martin's Fabrication (Ephrata) built and installed custom boxes in the bed.  Pennsylvania's CoSTARs program was used again to choose a vendor to install a lighting package.  10-8 Emergency Vehicle Service (New Holland) was selected to install the lights, siren, and console.  The lighting package includes an opticom system built into the headlights, all LED lights, and a custom built lightbar with front and rear traffic advisors built in.  Danz Lettering (Woxall, PA) did the striping and goldleafing on the truck.  All of the goldleaf is painted on and done by free hand.  Metropolitan Communications (Exton) installed the 800 radio and status box.  All of the equipment mounting was done in house by members of the apparatus committee.

Utility 27 will be used for a wide range of assignments.  The main assignment will be to carry personnel to calls and training.  It is equipped with traffic advisors and a large amount of fire police equipment for use directing  traffic.  It will also be used for pulling the containment trailer or the mass casualty trailer that we have.
