Apparatus

West Winfield Fire Department houses one of the finest fleets of vehicles anywhere. Through careful planning, design and purchasing we have acquired top of the line equipment, both new and used. Our eclectic color scheme sets us apart from most every other department anywhere. Red, green, purple, and white make up the colors of our apparatus.

129- This engine was acquired used from the River Edge, New Jersey Fire Department and has served us well for many years.  It is a 1975 Seagrave with a 1500 GPM Hale pump and carries 750 gallons of water.  It is powered by a 350 HP 8V92 Detroit Diesel.

410, a 75 ft ladder truck which was purchased from the New York Mills Fire Department is now out of service.  It served us well for many years.  In September of 2014 it was replaced with a 1983 Pierce 85 ft platform tower with a Detroit Allison Automatic.  This truck was purchased from the Hawthorne Fire Department, Hawtorne, NY.

512 - The newest addition to the fleet!..1991 Swab on a Spartan Gladiator Chassis has a 450 hp Detroit Allison Automatic which has a 15 KW generator and light tower.  This truck was custom built for the Hershey, PA Volunteer Fire Department. 

577- This Chevrolet panel van was purchased from the Duanesburg, NY fire department and is currently used as a medium duty rescue and contains our 4500 psi cascade system for refilling breathing air bottles.  It is powered by a Chevy 350 gasoline engine.

Our 1939 Federal with a made in New York State F.A.E. body was purchased new by the department and has remained in our possession ever since. It has served as a front line engine and has put out many fires.  For many years it has been out of service and used as a parade vehicle.  In 2011 then Chief Kevin Brown, Matthew Drake and others discovered that this pump is still operational and it still will pump water effectively to date.  It is currently undergoing a long painstaking process of restoration as time and funding allow.
