Medford Fire Truck Fleet
The acquisition of 9407 allows MFD to be mobile on and off road. Our side-by-side is outfitted with a foam/water combination to be utilized while tackling mainly grass fires, or hard to get to areas. This has also been utilized for rural search and rescue applications.
The newest engine to MFD, this engine joined the fleet in fall of 2017. It has been outfitted to be our primary motor vehicle accident engine and our first engine out on a local fire. This engine includes, in addition to all hoses and fire equipment, a 1st aid kit, the jaws of life, and when full, the ability to carry 6 firefighters to the scene.
Our second engine/pumper had been our primary firefighting apparatus since 1995, until 9408 joined the fleet. We now primarily have it outfitted for a second pumper and rural fire application. This engine also has room for 6 firefighters.
9405, a retired Gold Cross ambulance was donated to Medford Fire, and has since been utilized in a similar fashion. It is Medford Fire Department's primary medical call vehicle outfitted with medical equipment backboards, blankets etc. It also acts as a personnel carrier as it can fit 6 firefighters, extra air tanks , and equipment for a Rehab Center.
Our "mini-pumper" has been utilized in various ways since 1990 when it arrived at the Medford Fire Hall. It was originally utilized as the "first out" medical vehicle as well as being utilized as the MVA first truck. It now has since been scaled back in use and the primary function of the truck is grass fires, and mobile rural applications.
Our tanker, 9403, has been utilized as our water carrier. It sees very little use in town as there are hydrants, but is relied heavily upon in rural applications. It also sees a large amount of mutual aid calls to our neighboring fire departments when there is a need for faster water delivery.
