Today, the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services handed over five wildland fire engines to three Central Valley fire jurisdictions to support their local incident response as well as mutual aid resource requests for fires through California. The jurisdictions included Kern County Fire Department, Tulare County Fire Department and Kings County Fire Department.

These engines were ordered last year as part of the Governor’s concern with ongoing wildfires brought on by the drought to provide additional surge capability to the California Fire and Rescue Mutual Aid System. They were purchased as a result of the 2003 Governor’s Blue Ribbon Commission and Governor Brown’s commitment to the ongoing drought and fire issues.
