Reserve Rescue 509 returns to Castle Beach Fire Department! Originally on a 2007 Pierce Velocity chassis, this apparatus first served as Rescue 1, then as US&R 1 before being replaced by the 2017 Pierce Quantum tiller rescue. The department then sold the apparatus to San Bricko, a nearby city. After serving San Bricko for nearly three years, the apparatus was slated to be sold as San Bricko underwent a complete apparatus overhaul. At this time, Castle Beach Fire was looking to purchase a ready reserve rescue/US&R apparatus, and the city decided to buy the rig back and refurbish the apparatus before returning to Castle Beach Fire Department. However, during the drive to the dealer, the apparatus was involved in a serious accident when a semi unwittingly turned into the cab. Fortunately, no one was injured by the accident, but the apparatus was a total loss. Since the driver of the semi was at fault, the city would not have to pay for the repairs to the rig. Once it arrived at the dealer, the body was repainted and a stock Pierce Arrow XT cab was mounted to the body.

At this point, Reserve Rescue 509 will serve as a reserve rescue unit and will be housed at Station 9. However, if the need arises, callback rescue firefighters can be recalled, and this apparatus will be placed in service as Rescue 9.
