|Date / Time||N/A|
Members of the Salt Lake City community may have noticed the Salt Lake City Fire Department's new engines driving around on the streets.
The fire department acquired three new, custom-made Pierce XT Arrow engines, which are housed at Stations 1, 2 and 3. They went into service on Thursday.
The new engines feature several advantages, such as new technology, more safety features and a redesigned cab that will be more user-friendly to firefighters and paramedics. The new engines have airbags on both the driver and passenger side. There is a camera on the back of the engine that will assist the engineer while backing up.
The new engines will require less maintenance and benefit the community by producing less emissions.
The fire department has acquired five new vehicles in 2012, having purchased a new engine for Station 7 and a quint for Station 9 earlier this year.
