Fire Engines

  • Engine 104
  • Engine 103
Designed to be a multi-purpose fire apparatus, an engine assists in firefighting and rescue tasks by transporting firefighters, water, hoses and other equipment to an emergency scene. On a fire scene, the engines primary task is to provide water for fire suppression operations. In addition to fire and rescue equipment, our engines also carry advanced life support (ALS) supplies and equipment making it a very versatile vehicle. This apparatus is one of our first out vehicles for fires, vehicle accidents, EMS, and rescues.

Tenders

  • Tender 103
  • Tender 104
Designed to be a specialized fire apparatus, a tender’s primary purpose is transporting large amounts of water to a fire scene for fire suppression operations. These types of vehicles are especially useful in rural areas where fire hydrants are not readily available and natural water resources are insufficient or difficult to exploit. The tender is equipped with the same type of pump as our Engine, which means that this truck can be used as a front line fire suppression vehicle if needed. The tender is also equipped with dump valves on the sides and back of the vehicle, which allow firefighters to empty thousands of gallons of water into a portable water tank in just a few minutes.

These trucks are able to access and extinguish wildfires that bigger apparatus are not be able to reach. A brush truck is equipped with tools and equipment that might be needed at a wildfire, including chainsaws, picks, fire rakes, axes, and indian packs.

Wildland Tenders

Designed to be a specialized vehicle, wildland tenders are capable of bringing water, foam, or dry chemical to fire trucks in the field that are engaged on the fireline. Wildland tenders are designed for wildland firefighting operations with four-wheel drive, rugged suspension, and a high wheel clearance for off-road conditions. With many frontline brush trucks only carrying a couple hundred gallons of water, wildland tenders are crucial to ensuring that water and other supplies get transported to the fireline.

Heavy Rescue

Designed to be an all-hazards, special operations vehicle. It is primarily designed to provide the specialized equipment necessary for technical rescue situations such as auto accidents requiring vehicle extrication, building collapses, confined space rescue, rope rescues and swiftwater rescues. They carry an array of special equipment such as the Jaws of life, wooden cribbing, generators, winches, hi-lift jacks, cutting torches, circular saws and other forms of heavy equipment unavailable on standard trucks. This capability differentiates them from traditional pumper trucks or ladder trucks designed primarily to carry firefighters and their entry gear as well as on-board water tanks, hoses and equipment for fire extinguishing and light rescue. Most heavy rescue vehicles lack on-board water tanks and pumping gear, owing to their specialized role, but some do carry on-board pumps in order to broaden their response capability.

Chief Vehicle

A fire chief's vehicle, sometimes even called a "Buggy" (a throw back to horse drawn days), is a car, truck, or SUV that is used by a fire chief at fire scenes. Its specialized markings clearly indicate the Chief's rank, often making it a focal point at a large emergency scene. The large cargo area in the rear is outfitted with radios, manuals, whiteboards, reference materials and other items, which aid the incident commander in managing the incident resources.

Command Vehicle

  • Command 103
  • Rescue 103
A command vehicle is a car, truck, or SUV that is used by Officers at fire scenes. Its specialized markings clearly indicate that it is an Incident Command vehicle. Being smaller than most fire department apparatus, command vehicles are able to get to a scene quickly, allowing for command structures to be set up early during large/complex emergency scenes. The large cargo area in the rear is outfitted with radios, manuals, whiteboards, reference materials and other items, which aid the incident commander in managing the incident resources.
