Engine 3

A 2002 KME body with five person cab mounted on an International chassis. Engine 3 was designed for a dual purpose; as a spare Class A pumper for the fleet, and to be a heavy brush truck. Being a Class A pumper, Engine 3 carries a standard load-out of supply, attack and hard-suction hoses, and ground ladders, and is equipped with typical engine company tools.

Engine 3 features a 1,250 GPM, single-stage, front-mounted pump, and all-wheel drive, both of which assist in accessing a water source when drafting in off-road situations. This apparatus also has pump-and-roll capability, a feature that allows the engine to power both the drive train and pump simultaneously, for when the situation calls for a mobile hose line.

This apparatus carries 500 gallons of water and 25 gallons of Class B foam concentrate. Brush fire equipment includes forestry hand tools, a portable floating pump, chainsaw, collapsible Indian cans, and backpacks with forestry hose.
