Five OR Departments Receiving Engines or Tenders

Feb. 10, 2024
The Oregon fire marshal has been working on the initiative to provide the rigs to departments.

The Oregon State Fire Marshal delivered an engine to Central Cascades Fire & EMS in Crescent this week.  

Five Central Oregon fire agencies also will be receiving new fire engines or water tenders this year through the Engine Program and Response Ready Oregon Initiative, KTVZ reported.

“Today is a very exciting day for the OSFM, the Oregon fire service, and communities across the state. To see the first type 3 engine head out to serve Oregonians marks a monumental achievement. Over the last few years, so much work has gone into making this program a reality and it is so awesome to see how far the dedication by our staff and the fire service has gotten us." OSFM Chief Deputy Travis Medema said.
