Reserve Engine 102, a 1985 Seagrave, at Station 10 awaiting a call to
service. This pumper first was Engine 3, and then became Engine 10 in
1999. This gives NLRFD two reserve pumpers that seat all crew members.

 


Engine 10, a 2001 Pierce 1250 GPM Pumper, delivered new on June 7, 2002 and placed in service on June 21, 2002, was
purchased new from Pierce as a demo pumper in April, 2002. The truck is a sister engine to Engine 9, and, like Engine 9,
was an official Daytona (Florida) Speedway Pumper. The pumper only had a few hundred miles on the odometer when
delivered. Fire Station 10, located on U.S. Highway 70, just west of its junction with I-440, was opened in early 1988.  It was
built to provide fire protection to the industries, business and homes of the area as North Little Rock grows eastward.  As
North Little Rock has annexed land,  the territory this station serves has grown. It has grown to the point that Station 11 is
now being planned.   Many factories and large manufacturing companies have located in this area. Engine 10 also responds
to the Willow Beach area. Engine 10 also responds to areas as far west in the city as Baptist Hospital - North Little Rock!

Interesting Facts About Station 10 and Company 10: Station 10 opened in early 1988. The first engine to serve as Engine
10 was the 1971 Ford/Boardman. It was repainted and rehabilitated at a paint shop in the Arkansas Prison System by Arkansas
Prison Inmates. Several Little Rock F.D. Pumpers were painted from yellow to red by the same paint shop during this time. In 1992
the 1976 IH/ALF from Station 6 was sent to Station 10 as Engine 10. The cab (only) on the '76 was repainted before the pumper came
to Station 10. In 1995, the pumper from Station 6 (again) was transfered to Engine 10. (This took place as a new pumpers were put in
service at other stations, and their pumpers were sent to stations with still older apparatus.) The pumper sent to Station 10 from
Station 6 in 1995 was the 1981 American LaFrance, which had originally been Engine 1. In March, 1999 the '81 LaFrance was
destroyed in an accident on rain-soaked Highway 161. The pumper ended up on its top. This accident was NOT the fault of the
N.L.R.F.D. lieutenant who was driving. A 1996 E-One 1250 GPM Demo Pumper was available for immediate delivery. It became
Engine 1. Engine 1'S '92 Pierce went to Station 3, and the '85 Seagrave from Station 3 became Engine 10. In June, 2002, the present
Pierce Contender pumper went in service as Engine 10.
