Dade City, FL - It was a beautiful day in Dade City as we pushed in the brand new Engine 36!

Engine 36 is an E-One Typhoon engine manufactured in Ocala Florida with input from our design and safety committee. That committee is comprised of Firefighters from the field and members of our logistics team.

The new Engine 36 boasts several features, including a pump that can operate up to 1500 gallons of water a minute, a newly designed hose loading platform, HiViz 360 degree lighting for night operations, a custom bumper to house battery-powered extrication gear, and our new paint scheme.

The new Engine 36 is now in service to protect the Trilby and Dade City Communities of Pasco County!
