Emergency Vehicles (Fire Apparatus)


Chapter 6 of the 2011 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines focuses on funding for fire apparatus including, but not limited to, pumper, ladder trucks, and water tenders. Fire apparatus can go by different names regionally; however, this chapter uses the terms "fire apparatus" and "fire trucks" interchangeably to refer to fire-related emergency vehicles collectively. Both medium heavy-duty (MHD) and heavy heavy-duty (HHD) diesel fire apparatus are eligible for funding under this chapter.
