Fire Apparatus

The San Diego County Fire Authority has purchased needed fire apparatus and equipment for use by fire agencies in the unincorporated communities. To date, over 40 pieces of apparatus have been purchased for the volunteer and career departments. The purchases have significantly upgraded the in-service apparatus in the served communities. The apparatus consists of engines, water tenders, light & air vehicles, and rescue vehicles. Purchasing power has been maximized by leveraging over $7 million in funds from the County General Fund, Tobacco Trust Funds, Community Development Block Grant Funds (CDBG) and Indian Gaming Trust Funds. When the County purchases an apparatus for use by the partner fire agencies, the County retains ownership and maintains that piece of apparatus through the County Department of General Services Fleet Management for the life of the asset.
