|The Kendall Fire department and district is proud to announce the arrival of our new E-One Recue Pumper. A reception was held
Saturday morning, August 23. Among the folks who turn out for the short parade with the two trucks it is replacing was a
representative from Congresswoman Louis Slaughters office, Senator Maziarz, Assemblyman Hawley, and Orleans County Legislator
In an effort to increase efficiency and financial responsibility we replaced two aging pieces of apparatus (a rescue-32 years old and a
pumper- 27 years old) with this one dual role truck that actually improves our efficiency instead of hindering it which is a win-win
scenario for our tax payers, our community, and our firefighters. Through hours of hard work our department also secured, through
the Department of Homeland Security, an Assistance to Firefighters Grant in the sum of $249,850 to be used towards the purchase
of this truck. In October, you, our community, voted favorably to allow us to proceed with this project and to spend the $475,000 it
was estimated to cost including the $249,850 grant monies.
The cost of replacing both trucks individually would have been $655,000.
The final cost of this truck was $473,879.
Minus the grant monies secured $249,850.
Final cost to our tax payers $224,029.
This $224,029 cost is far less than the cost of replacing just one truck
We would like to thank our community for their support, not only in this project, but through your continued support of our fund
raisers and in showing your confidence in us by allowing us to protect your family and property for the past 96 years.
