Engine 1711 ~ Out of Service ~ See News Page!


A special thank you goes out to the Bergen Sawmill who donated the apparatus body currently mounted on Engine 1711. The original apparatus chassis the body was mounted on was inoperable and we had the body rebuilt and remounted on a new chassis by Sixby Fire. They also rebuilt the pump and upgraded the body's wiring and lighting.

Engine 1711 has a 500 GPM pump and 1000 Gallon Water Tank. It carries two booster reels, an attack line, two supply lines, a hydrant wrench, a 2.5 gallon water fire extinguisher, and a 20 pound ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher. It also carries an extension ladder, pike pole, first aid kit, axe, sledgehammer, forcible entry tool, two shovels, a broom, two bags of absorbent, and two flashlights.

Engine 1711 meets the NWCG (National Wildfire Coordination Group) requirements for a Type 4 Engine (w/2 FF) or a Type 3 Water Tender (w/1 FF).





Brush 1771


Through years of fundraising we also purchased a used apparatus, Brush 1771, from the state. It was for sale as part of their surplus apparatus program that offers used apparatus to other fire departments in the state at a reduced cost.

Brush 1771 has a 250 GPM PTO powered pump, a 500 Gallon Water Tank, a 20 Gallon Class A Foam System, and has four wheel drive with a high ground clearance and locking differentials. This is our go anywhere apparatus. It carries two booster reels, an attack line, two supply lines, a hydrant wrench, a 2.5 gallon water fire extinguisher, and a 20 pound ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher. The cab holds two flashlights, an axe, a sledgehammer, and a forcible entry tool. The driver's side compartments contain a first aid kit, AED (automated external defibrillator), oxygen bottle, water cooler, and binoculars. The passenger's side compartments contain a small wrench, hammer, and screwdriver, a saw, a fuel can, and a bag of absorbent. Three tool holders are built into the chassis, under the flatbed body, and carry two shovels and a broom.

Brush 1771 meets the NWCG (National Wildfire Coordination Group) requirements for a Type 5 Engine.





Rescue 1751


Rescue 1751 was purchased from a tool company for $2,500 and was rebuilt for fire service use by Sixby Fire. Upgrades included warning lights, a 10kW generator, two telescopic lights, three side mounted scene lights, and various tool mountings and storage on the inside of the body.

Rescue 1751 carries a first aid kit, a 2.5 gallon water fire extinguisher, a 20 pound ABC dry chemical fire extinguisher, and two Metl-X Dry Power extinguishers. It carries a 55 gallon drum of absorbent, cribbing, a spare tire, jack, three traffic cones, two rescue ropes, two personal flotation devices, two water rescue life rings, a shovel and broom, a large wrench/prybar, axe, sledgehammer, forcible entry tool, a CO/gas detector, and the Jaws of Life and power unit. It also carries in a removable tool box, two water coolers, two flashlights, binoculars, a small wrench, hammer, screwdriver, hydrant wrench, and a cordless drill.

If some equipment is removed first, Rescue 1751 can also carry our 250 GPM portable pump and two hard suctions which are stored in the Station in case units need to draft from a water tank, stock tank, or from Bergen Creek.
