Nampa Fire Department invites community to Nampa Squad 51 “push in” ceremony December 3

Nampa Squad 51 Push In Ceremony

The Nampa Fire Department (NFD) invites to the community to learn about its newest response vehicle and participate in a fire service tradition, the “push in ceremony” for Nampa Squad 51 on December 3, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. at Fire Station 1 (923 1st Street South).

Nampa Squad 51 is a two-person quick response unit that will be first to respond out of Station #1 on medical calls. Nampa Squad 51 will be staffed with a Driver/Firefighter/Paramedic and a Captain. While its primary purpose will be medical response, the squad will also be equipped with a small water tank and pump along with firefighting gear on board.

The squad model has been deployed across the United States for many years. Nampa Squad 51 is a nod towards the 1970’s television show “Emergency” featuring a rescue vehicle called Squad 51. The primary purpose of Nampa’s Squad 51 is to keep larger units (i.e., fire engines) in their assigned districts for a higher percentage of the time during the day in case of larger incidents. Approximately 70% of NFD service calls are medical in nature. The squad will be responding out of Station #1 and able to assist other stations and nearby areas as needed.

Fire Chief Phil Roberts said, “It has taken almost two years to get to this point. It wouldn’t have been possible without the dedicated effort and time by several individuals. Thank you to Mayor Kling and the Nampa City Council for seeing and supporting our vision and thank you to our fire staff for providing input and direction on the deployment of the squad. As the Nampa Fire Chief, I am proud of our city and our department and believe Nampa Squad 51 will be a fantastic addition to our community.”

The mission of the Nampa Fire Department is to honorably serve our community in a safe, prompt and professional manner.
