This first due pumper is traditionally housed at the Blue Ridge Main Station on Keyes Gap Road.  Engine 5-2 is classified as a class "A" pumper whose primary function is to be utilized for offensive and defensive operations on the fireground.  Engine 5-2 is a 1991GMC Top Kick / S&S Pumper equipped with a 1,250 GPM pump and carries 1,000 gallons of water.  

Engine 5-2 was purchased from the Hempfield Township Volunteer Fire Company in Mercer County, Pennsylvania.

This tanker is the first due tanker in the Blue Ridge first due area where hydrants are lacking.  With 3,500 gallons of water on board crews have more than enough water on board to make a serious knock down on most fires that are ran.  Designated as a tanker, this piece of apparatus assists our neighboring departments by running in tanker shuttles where hydrant systems are not available.  Tanker 5-2 has served as a piece of apparatus at Blue Ridge that has proven time and time again to be a very valuable resource for the community.

Tanker 5-2 is a 2009 International Work Star / Firovac that is equipped with a 1,000 GPM pump.

This All Terrain Response Vehicle is housed at the Blue Ridge Main Station and serves as the primary brush fire unit.  Brush 5-2 is classified as a Type 3 wildland engine and with its off road capabilities can put a quick knock on any brush, grass or wildland fire in the area.  Because of its off road capabilities, Brush 5-2 assists our neighboring departments on brush fire calls and off road rescues.

Brush 5-2 is a 1968 Kaiser Deuce 1/2 6 x 6 equipped with a 600 gallon water tank.
