Truck Co. 4
Updated On: May 13, 2011

1047 N. Main ave. is the home of Truck Co. 4 as well as two of three spare pumpers.  Truck Co. 4 covers West Side, North Scranton, Tripp Park the Plot Section as well as and parts of Central City and Keyser Valley as its first due area. This company is on all second alarm fires. 

Prior to its present location this company called the station at N. Main ave and Potomac st. home along with Engine Co. 9. This station was built in 1928 and was the result of consolidation of companies. 

Hose no. 2 and Hose no. 10 would become Engine Co. 9. Truck Co. 4 was formed by the disbanding of Truck Co. 3. Truck Co. 3 was located at Engine Co. 2’s station on Cedar ave. 

In 1964 the station on 1047 N. Main ave was constructed and the old station was razed to make way for the new Scranton Expressway off ramp to N. Main ave. 

Up until 2011 Engine Co. 9 was located here, the District Chief (C-22) and one of the ambulance companies (C-24) also were stationed here until their disbandment.

 


Truck 4 (although lettered as "Quint 1) is a 1993 Emergency-One Quint with a 75' Aerial , a 1500 gpm pump, and a 500 gallon booster tank. Truck co.4 is staffed with four Firefighters.
