FTU featured in DOD Fire News for Type 6 Refit
“USMC New off-road fire engine ideal for High Desert terrain”
Firetrucks Unlimited recently completed the refit of a type 6 brush truck for Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow to help them access hard to reach areas.
“We had it refitted into a fire engine that is capable of getting through the tunnel between MCLB Barstow and the Marine Memorial Golf Course,”
The best part is, we were able to save them a ton of money and deliver a great truck to help them achieve their mission.
The refitting of the truck into the Type-6 fire engine cost just a little under $200,000 and was done by Fire Trucks Unlimited, a firm in Henderson, Nevada, which specializes in building Fire Rescue Vehicles, Fire Rescue Utility Vehicles, and Ultra High-Pressure Firefighting Systems. That compares to building a new fast response fire engine from the ground for $450,000 to $500,000.
