Equipment




Tanker 101 - Engine/Tanker - This is a 2002 Pierce Dash Pumper-Tanker designed to carry large amounts of water (1500 gallon capacity) for areas without hydrant service or where hydrant supply is too limited for the amount of water needed. The pump can output 150 gallons of water per minute. It carries 1500 feet of 5" supply line and 750 feet of pre-connected attack line.




Service 101 - This is a 2005 Chevrolet 4500 4x4 chassis with attached box used to carry equipment that will not fit on other trucks, or specialized equipment at scenes not requiring water services such as accidents, floods, or other such calls. Also shown is the box trailer used to transport ATV101 and other related equipment.




ATV 101 - ATV101 is a six-wheel-drive 2002 model year Polaris All Terrtain Vehicle that is used for a variety of purposes. We have several 'accessories' that are used depending on the need. There is a small high-pressure tank and hose for getting into areas not accessible even by our four-wheel-drive vehicles. Another accessory is a backboard used to extricate those in need from wooded areas due to off-road motorcycle or ATV accidents, hunters trapped due to hunting accidents, falls, or other medical emergencies, shuttling air bottles to and from Air Trucks in order to maintain the ability to send firefighters into burning structures or hazmat situations as quickly as possible while doing so in a way that maintains THEIR safety. It is even used to shuttle firefighters in and out of wooded areas due to the weight of the equipment they must carry. Anything that helps save their strength for their primary task (fighting the fire) is worth the effort. Also used is a pull-behind trailer that carries a second skid unit.




Engine 101 - This is a 1994 Pierce Dash Pumper housed at our sub-station used to respond to emergency calls. It carries 1000 gallons of water and has a 1750 gallon per minute pump. It also carries 1500 feet of 5" supply line and 1150 feet of preconnected attack line.




Brush 101 - This is a 2002 Ford F-550 (refurbished in 2013) to fight brush fires or smaller fires. This truck carries 250 gallons of water and 5 gallons of foam. On the front is a remote control deluge gun to fight fires immediately upon arrival. This unit is currently housed at our Sub-Station.




Squad 101 - This is a 2011 Chevrolet Impala used to transport personnel to scenes and training events. It is also the primary response vehicle for our IRP service.
