With a large fleet of fire engines, fire trucks, rescue ambulances, and a variety of special response apparatus such as water tenders, air utility, Urban Search & Rescue and command vehicles, Glendale Fire keeps maintenance costs under control and quality at a premium by staffing and supplying its own shop for repairs and regular maintenance. An on-site warehouse adjacent to the maintenance shop provides needed parts and other supplies quickly so vehicles can be returned to service with minimal delay.
The best in the business! From left to right, Sam Ayad, Will Williams, Frank Zadian, Gary Christensen, and Mike Marino (not pictured: Alex Perez).
Glendale Fire's NEW Tradition
Glendale Fire Department has received our new RED fire apparatus - six in total! Four new 2005 Pierce Engines and two new 2005 Pierce Ladder Trucks. Above picture shows the two new ladder trucks back at the factory. The one on the left is the new Truck 26, and the one on the right is the new Truck 21. We expect our new USAR and Hazmat apparatus to go into service by mid-summer 2006.
Five new fire apparatus went into service on September 22nd, 2005. This completes the frontline fleet to all fully enclosed - Pierce Quantum cabs.
