The Dayville Fire Co. in Killingly operated a 1987 Spartan Olympian/LTI/GK 110' Quint for many years. It had a 1500-GPM pump with a 300-gallon water tank. The Spartan was retired in 2016 when a new Pierce Velocity 107' Quint arrived. It has a 1500-GPM pump, like its predecessor, with a 500-gallon tank.
