1988 Chevy Custom Deluxe
Brush 68 is a 1988 Chevy Custom Deluxe, four wheel drive pick-up, with a custom suppression setup and is housed at our substation. The truck carries a host of hand tools for containing the spread of brush and forest fires. Unlike the pumps on our class A engines, the pump on this truck can operate independent of the vehicle's power train. This allows the truck to be driven along the outer edges of field fires and apply water directly on the burning vegitation to stop fire spread and quickly contain the fire. With its 4x4 capabilities, the brush truck is also used during severe storms to assist with clearing downed trees, as well as removing vehicles stuck in rising waters with its winch.
