Apparatus

Command Vehicle

2019 Chevrolet Tahoe SSV

The command vehicle is used by the Chief, or officer in charge, to respond directly to scenes and coordinate the incident.  The vehicle is equipped with numerous radios, tools, and pre-plans, along with a custom fire service cabinet which includes a workspace for the officer to coordinate the incident.

Communication is critical for any incident.  The truck is equipped with several radios covering VHF, UHF, and 700/800 MHz frequencies.  This allows us to communicate with all of our mutual aid and monitor the fireground effectively. 

The unit is also equipped with a Self Contained Breathing Apparatus (SCBA), spare air bottle, forcible entry tools, water extinguisher, medical kit, oxygen, defibrillator, portable radios, lights, and accountability supplies. 

This vehicle was purchased entirely with fire company funds, including money raised from fundraising such as the pancake breakfasts and annual fund drive.
