Engine/Pumper

The “Engine” is the most commonly used general response fire apparatus used to initially respond to any incident that may arise. The average engine carries approximately 750 to 1000 gallons of water, basic tools, hoses and equipment used to operate on most fire scenes and can pump firefighting water at the rate of 1250 to 1500 gallons per minute. Some engines that operate in our agency also carry basic first responder medical equipment as well as technical rescue/extrication equipment onboard that is used commonly during motor vehicle accidents.
