Spec on the new Bucks Lake Fire Truck. 23” shorter wheel base than the old truck

The Model 18 Type 1 Interface Interface sets the benchmark for American urban interface design. Its tight-turning and durable HME 1871 SFO® Chassis was specifically developed and engineered to reach remote and rugged off-highway locations – and access terrain that will stop ordinary pumpers in their tracks.

Born through decades of partnership with CAL Fire and California’s OES (Governor’s Office of Emergency Services) the Model 18 Type 1 Interface met the challenges of this unique and rugged brand of firefighting with a balance of specialized features and technology.

Bucks Lake Fire was able to purchase one of these incredible pieces of fire fighting equipment through the S.A.F.E. grant program and our firefighters are excited to operate this quality, and well equipped fire truck.  This truck came fully stocked with all the tools, hose, fittings, and equipment needed to perform the tasks required.  Our firefighters are in the process of adding some tools specific to our response area to make the truck as they want for their missions.

This truck is a magnificent addition to the fire trucks in service and provides a welcome addition to our mission of caring for our members, visitor, and families of Bucks Lake in the time of an emergency.
