Engine 51

Say hello to Engine 51!

Every Monday we perform the detailed truck check of Engine 51. This includes checking the oil, coolant and fluids to ensure the diesel engine is operation properly. We also check all of the power tools such as saws, fans, extrication tools and smaller battery operated tools. It probably goes without saying that we also check the pump itself, running it with flowing water the ensure that it operates as expected and is ready for use when we need it.

Engine 51 is our second out engine which means it is in service and ready to go but is not the first truck that we take to a fire. We equip Engine 51 with air packs, power tools, ladders and just about everything that our first out engine has.
