Station 3: Roberts Road Firehouse
Station 3 is located at 133 Roberts Road, near the industrial area of the Township. Built in 2004, Station 3 is the Third Battalion Headquarters, housing Engine 3, Squad Engine 7, Spare Engine 20 and Battalion 3. Station 3 was designed after the City of Austin, Texas Fire Station 34. The City of St. Lego® liked the design so much, they modeled their Fire Station 19 after it, with some modification.
Engine 3 is a 2014 Pierce Arrow XT 6-man pumper. Engine 3 comes with a 1,750 GPM Waterous pump, a 500 gallon booster tank and a 40 gallon foam cell, with capabilities to flow foam out of three pre-connected hose lines. "Three of a Kind" is their catch phase as they are in a firehouse with three pumpers. Hence, three of a kind.
Squad Engine 7
Squad Engine 7 is a 2008 Pierce Impel 6-man pumper. Engine 7 has a 1,750 GPM Waterous pump, a 500 gallon booster tank and a 40 gallon foam cell. Engine 7 has a witty phrase describing their pumper as they said buying an Impel was an intelligent choice, or "Impel-igent!" for short.
Engine 20 is a 1994 Pierce Dash pumper, refurbished in 2009 and repainted in 2014. Engine 20 seats 6 firefighters, has a 1,750 GPM Waterous pump, a 500 gallon booster tank and a 30 gallon foam cell. Engine 20 sees duty as a spare pumper and a training academy piece. Engine 20 was purchased from a local used fire apparatus dealer and sent to Pierce for refurbishing.
