   The West Fargo Fire Department is launching a new pumper and rescue unit to serve the community . The all - hazards pumper carries tools , a full complement of National Fire Protection Association ( NFPA ) recommended hoses and a 750 - gallon water tank to pump water on scenes of fires . The rescue unit is utilized for fire scene rehabilitation , air tank refills , heavy rescue , water rescue and hazmat operations .
   The new pumper replaces an engine with 14 years of service . The new rescue unit replaces a unit with 20 years of service . The NFPA recommends that equipment this old is replaced with vehicles that have interior surface materials that can be decontaminated of carcinogens . Mitigating exposure to carcinogens is important because according to the Centers for Disease Control cancer is a leading cause of death among firefighters .
   “The addition of this new pumper and rescue unit helps the department meet the NFPA recommendations to replace equipment , ” said Dan Fuller , West Fargo Fire Department Chief . “This equipment will not only help keep our community safe , but also keeps our firefighters safe from cancer . ”
   Fifty percent of the equipment cost is receiving funding through a North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality grant . The goal of the grant is to replace older diesel vehicles with new , cleaner diesel vehicles . The grant money is a result of a settlement between the U . S . Department of Justice and Volkswagen over the company’s misrepresentation of diesel emissions for their products . Capital improvement sales tax will fund the remaining cost of the vehicles .
