The Fox Chapel Volunteer Fire Department’s second station is located on Dorseyville Road, directly across from Beechwood Farms. This station houses Engine 2 and Squad 2. Built in 1960, Station 2 is a simple structure consisting of only two garage bays, a half-bathroom, and a utility room.
157 Engine 2
Engine 2 is a 2015 Seagrave Marauder II custom built pumper carrying 750 gallons of water and capable of pumping 1500 gpm. It features a Cummins engine, Allison transmission, and a full stainless-steel cab and body.
While similar to Engine 1, there are a few noticeable differences between the FCVFD’s two Seagrave pumpers- most notably, Engine 2 is shorter. In order to fit in the aged Station 2, Engine 2 was ordered with a short front bumper and the engineer’s compartment directly behind the pump panel is unusually narrow. Engine 2 also has a collapsible deck gun to minimize the height of the truck.
157 Squad 2
Squad 2 is a 2012 Ford F-350 chassis with an Omaha utility body. The truck was lighted, lettered, and upfit by Ibis-Tek in Butler, PA. Squad 2 carries a variety of utility and traffic control equipment similar to Squad 1, but Squad 2 also carries HURST eDraulic battery powered hydraulic cutters and spreaders, as well as cribbing and other rescue equipment.
