New Brush Engine for Poway Fire Department

Poway Fire new brush engine

This week the Poway Fire Department placed into service its new 2019 West-Mark brush engine at Fire Station 3 to provide enhanced wildland fire protection to our community. This 4-wheel drive off-road apparatus replaces an aging 1997 brush engine.

Based on the incident type and resource request, crews at all three fire stations now have the ability to respond in either the traditional structure engine or the more specialized 4X4 brush engine.

Poway saves for major equipment purchases like the brush engine by setting aside a portion of its cost each year. This proactive approach to financial management allows the city to strategically plan ahead for equipment purchases. With the money on hand when equipment needs replacing, there is no interruption in providing safe and reliable services.
