Indianapolis Fire Station 32 - 6330 North Guilford Avenue - Broadripple Village
Opened in October 4, 1922, this building originally served as the Broadripple Town Hall and Fire Station. This firehouse is home to Engine Company 32.

Engine 32 - 2017 Pierce Saber FR (#31402TR-01) - 2000gpm/500gal
This apparatus (W/O#: 22273071) entered service on February 16, 2018 and became the first new Engine ever assigned to Station 32 since it opened in 1922! This historical firehouse requires a custom height engine and this rig was highly (if subtlely) customized. Unlike the rest of IFD's most recent Pierce Sabers, this one has a flat roof. The overall body was built lower, which necessitated the removal of the officer's side long, over-wheel compartment. The frame itself is actually lower and even the wheels and tires are slightly smaller. While the rig has a pre-piped deck gun, the gun itself has to be mounted once on-scene. Finally, the visor-mounted light bar is unique in the department. With their previous 1995 Engine now returned to reserve status, we expect this apparatus to be in service for many years to come.

IFD's Engine 32 was the first custom cab Pierce Engine completely built at Pierce's Bradenton, Florida plant.

Engine 32's short station height necessitated a unique brow-mounted LED light bar.

Shown here in 2005, this rig originally served as Engine 3 from 1995-2003 and then as Engine 32 from 2003-2005. Due to it's unique height, it was re-assigned back from reserve to frontline service on July 18, 2016.

Out of an obvious height necessity, Engine 32 was the first IFD apparatus to use an LED light bar that became the standard in 2005.
