New Engine 11 - Arriving Soon

Taylor Fire Rescue members along with Mayor and Council are excited to be welcoming the arrival of the new Engine 11 at the end of February 2020.  Replacing the existing Engine 11, the new engine will be put through a strict 8 week driver and equipment training regiment with the staff and volunteers, going into service the first week of May.  Join us at activities during the Emergency Preparedness Week May 4-8, 2020 to check out the new Engine 11.

In the meantime, take a walk around Taylor Fire Rescue’s #Enforcer #Pumper with Chief Byford. One reason this chassis was chosen was to be ergonomically friendly getting in and out of the cab. Being an on-call department, this rig allows for flexibility while transitioning through calls. Having a top-mount enclosed pump panel allows the engineer to work inside due to the cold climate of Taylor BC.

To maximize space on the apparatus, the department went with full depth compartments and slide-out drawers to allow firefighters to reach equipment with ease. Not relying on other rigs to handle equipment, this rig stores the hydraulic system to serve road rescue calls as well. Keeping the firefighter’s safety in mind, M4 LED flashlights were added to the interior of the doors to eliminate highway safety concerns when on scene.
