Brush 2 (5632) 

Brush 2 is our largest capacity wildland fire truck, it carries 380 gallons of water and 20 gallons of foam. It has a mid-range pump capable of wildland fire attack, but can also be used for initial structure fire attack if needed. Functionally it is equipped to respond to wildland fires, but in this case it also has self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA) and ladder for initial cabin fires, where a full size fire engine cannot make it up the driveway. Responders from this station also use this truck for responding to motor vehicle wrecks and other types of calls.
