130YearsofService

Fire trucks are known as "apparatus" around the Fire Department.

 

Each piece of apparatus and its respective equipment are routinely checked to ensure that everything is operating as designed. Any defects are repaired before being returned to service.

 

All apparatus are placed on an aging schedule. During the active life of each piece, money is put aside in anticipation of replacing the unit in the future. As apparatus and major equipment ages, it is replaced through a committee and tender process.  The committee establishes a framework of needs and wants for the particular unit and then works within the budget to ensure that the apparatus tendered for and purchased will meet the needs of the City of Brandon and service community.

 

Introducing our... new Top Mount Enclosed Pump Fire Truck

Pump 15

 

On January 30, 2015 we took possession of a new Top Mount Enclosed Pump Fire Truck (#15 Pump). This state of the art truck replaces #11 Pump, as it has reached the end of its 20 year life span.

 

The truck was manufactured by Fort Garry Fire Trucks, and is very similar to #14 pump, which we received in the fall of 2012. This will be the pump we will use to respond to rural fires.

 

Brandon Fire & Emergency Services takes pride in the care of our apparatus and equipment. Properly working equipment can mean the matter of life and death when responding to an emergency.
