Our engine is our primary means of attacking a fire. This vehicle responds to structure fires, fire alarms, car fires, motor vehicle accidents, odor investigations, and other call types. Fully equiped with an AED and a first-in EMS bag, it can support the treatment of one patient while simultaneously tackling a fire.
This vehicle is primarily used as a tanker (to supply water to the scene of a fire in a rural area without hydrants), but it also serves as our backup engine. This is the most crucial piece of equipment for providing mutual aid; it is the most commonly requested apparatus when we help other agencies due to its versatility. 1921 is equipeed with an AED and a first-in EMS bag.
Heavy Rescue 1943
Endearingly refered to as the "Jack of all Trades" in our fire house, 1943 is primarily used for motor vehicle accidents, but also for mass casualty incidents and technical rescue incidents such as rope rescue, swiftwater rescue, and ice rescue. It also serves as a command vehicle. Boasting 3 first-in bags, an AED, splinting materials for up to 10 patients, immobilization resources for more than 5 patients, multiple pediatric supply kits, OB/GYN kits, and medications, this vehicle can easily provide resources to treat many patients in place while awaiting transport at the scene of an incident.
Light Rescue 1942
This is the most commonly used vehicle and is used to provide medical assistance. 1942 gets to see most of our calls, as it is always brought on scene to any call that might involve patients. 1942 has the ability to provide resources for the treatment of up to two patients simulateously, and has enough supplies on-board for up to 4 patients. Carrying an AED, an automated CPR machine and various medications, 1942 is a valuable asset.
Brush Truck 1941
1941 is perhaps our most versatile vehicle. Primarily used for brush fires, this is also the vehicle we use for service calls, such as trees or wires in the road. 1943 can supply multiple firefighters with portable water packs, provides all of the necessary equipment to ensure scene safety and can help facilitate vehicle traffic on the scene of an accident. In addition to carrying an AED and a first-in bag, this vehicle also carries CPR kits for most pets.
