Colorado State Fire Officials Unveil New Fire Engines

DENVER — Wednesday, July 12, 2017— The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) invite media and the public to attend the unveiling of five “Type 3” fire engines.

Equipped with a 600-gallon water tank and 500-gallon-per-minute pump, four-wheel drive, and the ability to seat 4 firefighters, these new engines are one of many tools that DFPC can deploy to help agencies battle wildfires in Colorado. “Type 3” fire engines are commonly referred to as the largest, most rugged, and powerful of the wildland fire engine types. These engines provide a significant upgrade to the state's firefighting capability.
