2023 Engine 271 Delivered

Library VFC’s new Engine 271 was delivered on a busy day for volunteers. After returning from a 2nd alarm building fire in the county park and two natural gas investigations on Maripat Dr, crews welcomed the new 271 Engine. After a year and a half of planning and production time this 2023 Pierce Enforcer pumper will replace the current 1999 Pierce Quantum.
