New engine for Berwyn

This from Josh Boyajian:

Wednesday I had the opportunity to shoot Berwyn’s new Pierce PUC that just entered into service. It is a short wheelbase, 2016 Pierce Enforcer PUC pumper with a 1,500-GPM pump and a 750-gallon water tank. Lots of thought and effort went into spec’ing this rig, with a lower hose bed and firefighter friendly compartments. Thanks to Lieutenant Tokarczyk and Crew! Enjoy
