WPFD Engine – 1 Now in Service

We have teased a little about this for a while but the time is here to make a grand announcement. Our new Engine 1 is now in service at Station #1 and we could not be more proud of this fine fire fighting machine!

This pumper truck is made custom built by Toyne Fire Apparatus is constructed on a 2022 Kentworth Chassis. It carries 1,000 gallons of water and contains a Hale pump that can produce 1,250 gallons per minute. It carries 1,500 feet of 4-inch (LDH) supply hose and 500 feet of 3-inch supply hose on the hose bed. It also has cross-lay storage behind the cab of the truck that has two sections of 1 3/4 inches attack hose, each with 200 feet preconnected for a fast deployment.

We are quite proud of this truck that has been planned for years and took 13 months to build after a detailed design and ordering process. We are thrilled to have this new truck online and are quite confident this truck will serve our communities well over the next many years!

Construction has started on our new Fire Station at Brush Mountain Trail

Construction started this week to frame the new fire station planned for Brush Mountain Trail near the Pulaski/Saline County line off of Kanis Road and 12th Street.

West Pulaski Fire Department is a 501(c)3 non-profit and your tax-deductible donation can show you support for our fire department, community, residents, and businesses in this area. We will display your name on our sponsor board at the job site for the duration of construction through occupancy, and then add your name to the new station’s charter sponsors for display in the station.

Please consider committing yourself or your business as a sponsor to our project and showing the community that you care! Thank you!

Rescue at Pinnacle Mountain State Park

WPFD was dispatched to a medical call at approximately 7:20 pm on 4/26/2022. The nature of the call was an injured biker that had suffered a fall on a difficult-to-access ledge near the trailhead around the Pinnacle Mountain Park Visitors Center. The injured rider was located at a dangerous and rocky slope approximately 20-40 feet below the trail. The rider was extracted a little before 9 pm and then transported to a hospital for medical care. Thanks to the hard work of everyone, including Pulaski Sheriff's deputies, MEMS, Arkansas State Parks Rangers, and Little Rock Fire's Rescue 2, Engine 2, and Tower 21 for the high angle extraction on a steep incline.
