The first of several replacement emergency vehicles that have been ordered by Ocala Fire Rescue has been received. The new fire apparatus feature an updated color scheme and new graphics for the department. Later this year two fire engines, two additional rescue vehicles and a command vehicle will be delivered.
“It was an opportune time due to the numerous vehicles that have been ordered to make a change in color to a black over red scheme to redefine our department that has served our citizens since 1885,” stated Fire Chief Bradd Clark.
The advanced life support rescue vehicle features a 10-foot non-walk-in body manufactured by E-One, mounted on a Ford F550 extended cab chassis.
