Pembroke Squad 5 is a 2017 Ford F-550 mini pumper that was built by HME-Ahrens Fox. It runs out of headquarters to serve as a "chase car" for the ambulance. This unit, with 400-gallons of water, 800-feet of supply line and a 1500-GPM pump, can break away if needed. The well thought out apparatus allows the career department to get started while waiting for help to arrive while reducing wear and tear on the larger vehicles.
