The Canyon Lake Fire Department placed the city’s new fire engine into service on Monday. The new engine, identified as Engine 1, is now the primary response engine of the fire department. The firefighters of Station 1 nicknamed the new engine the “Black Pearl.”
Engine 201, formally Engine 60, has been transitioned to reserve status and will be housed at Station 1.
The city’s new engine came with a price tag of more than $719,000. The lease-purchase agreement is roughly $84,000 for a term of ten years at 2.95 percent.
Engine 1 is equipped with airbags and rollover protection and features a “clean cab” concept to keep carcinogens out of the cab. It also has the ability to “pump and roll” on wildfires, typically something that is only done with specialty wildland fire apparatus.
Four self-contained breathing apparatus, four spare self-contained breathing apparatus bottles, three ladders, and a fire radio connected to headsets for the firefighters to protect their hearing were included in the purchase of Engine 1.
