About Us - Current Fleet


Tanker 4
This unit is built on a 1999 Freightliner FL80 chassis. The chassis was acquired locally in the summer of 2014 and the tank was acquired separately later that year. Work on the truck was completed by local mechanics. Upon completion, it entered service in January, 2015. It has a stainless steel water tank which has the capacity to store 20,000 litres of water. A cabinet at the rear of the vehicle allows access to a large dump valve, with chute, as well as the storage of hose and couplings.


Engine 3
Engine 3 is built on a 2013 Spartan Metro Star-X chassis and was acquired through Dependable Emergency Vehicles in December, 2012. It has a water tank capacity of 3,611 litres and has a pump rating of up to 5,011 litres per minute. It also has a 114 litre foam tank. The truck has a "top control pump panel" which is positioned behind the cab. This allows the pump operator to simultaneously monitor the controls and maintain a higher perspective of the incident scene. Booster lines are stored near the pump operator's controls as well as in a compartment in the front bumper. It has seating for up to six personnel including the driver. The passenger seats are designed so that a breathing apparatus can be recessed into the backrest of the seat which members can don while en route to an incident. This truck also carries an extension ladder and a large portable tank in compartments accessible from the rear of the vehicle.

Rescue Unit
This unit is built on a 2007 International 4400 chassis with a body fabricated by Allain Equipment Manufacturing. It entered service with the Department in May, 2007. This is a walk-in style rescue unit with an entrance at the rear of the vehicle. An opening allows communication between the cab and rear of the vehicle. In addition to an ample supply of tools and equipment, this unit also contains an on-board electric generator and refilling station for breathing apparatuses. A multitude of cabinets located inside and outside the vehicle provide ample storage. The interior of the vehicle provides seating for the crew including SCBA seating for up to eight personnel (four on each side of the vehicle) and a fold down bench mounted near the rear entrance.

Technical Rescue Trailer
The Technical Rescue trailer carries the tools and equipment necessary for incidents that involve complex rescue situations. These items include a row boat, stokes basket, rescue sled, ropes, harnesses, life jackets, life ring and several other small tools. When the need arises, this trailer is hitched to a truck and brought to the scene. The trailer was designed and created by the fire department members in 2005.

Engine 2
Engine 2, built on a 1997 GMC C8500 chassis, was manufactured by Metalfab and delivered in February, 1997. It has a water tank capacity of 1,500 gallons and can pump 1,050 gpm. This is a combination pumper which can produce foam or water. It has seating for up to three personnel including the driver. The passenger seats are designed so that a breathing apparatus can be recessed into the backrest of the seat which members can don while en route to an incident. Spare air bottles can be carried in specifically designed compartments located on either side of the rear wheel wells. This truck also carries a large portable tank to allow tanker trucks to deliver a supply of water to the pumper while at a major incident.

Tanker 1
This unit is built on a 1989 Ford F800 chassis. It was delivered in May, 1989 and entered service shortly after this time. It has the capacity to haul 2,900 gallons of water. In addition to a supply of hose and couplings, this truck also carries an extension ladder and a portable pump. There is also a large dump valve with chute located on the rear of the truck to allow for the rapid dispensement of water into a drop tank. Pictured, far left, is Tanker 1 as it originally looked when it was acquired by the department. In the early 2000's, major modifications were made to the truck including the installation of an additional rear axle along with a new water tank.
