Fire Station 23 Apparatus
Type 1 Structure Engine
A Type 1 Engine is designed and equipped to handle many types of emergencies. Specifically, it carries the hose, water and pump necessary to extinguish any type of fire that can be accessed from paved roads. It also carries the necessary tools and equipment to mitigate just about any other emergency that the fire department responds to: medical emergencies, vehicle accidents, rope rescues, hazardous material incidents, public assists and much more.
Type 3 Wildland Engine
A Type 3 Engine is specifically designed and equipped to handle fires that occur in the wildland setting. They carry the hose, water and pump necessary to extinguish fires that require “off-road” capabilities, in order to access. A Type 3 engine is smaller and lighter than a Type1 Engine and usually is equipped with 4-wheel drive.
A Foam Tender is built specifically to transport firefighting foam to large flammable liquid fires. It can potentially be used anywhere flammable liquids are stored or transported: railways, highways, gas stations, pipelines, bulk storage facilities and more. A Foam Tender works in conjunction with a Type 1 Engine to produce a large supply of firefighting foam.
Breathing Support Unit
A Breathing Support Unit (BSU) is specifically designed and equipped to provide stored compressed air at emergencies that require the use of a self-contained breathing apparatus (S.C.B.A). A good example of this type of incident is a structure fire. Firefighters need an S.C.B.A in order to work in such a hazardous environment. The BSU transports additional breathing air to refill the empty air cylinders used for fire suppression activities.
EUV – Emergency Utility Vehicle
An Emergency Utility Vehicle (EUV) is a small all-terrain vehicle designed to operate in areas with limited access. It can transport the necessary tools and equipment to aid in the rescue of patients who can only be reached by utilizing narrow roads, trails, walking paths and more. It has the capability of quickly transporting an immobilized patient, from a remote location to an awaiting ambulance.
