New Apparatus

Planned Distribution

There are currently 24 units scheduled to be placed throughout TVF&R's service area over time.

TVF&R puts nearly a million miles on its fleet annually while responding to emergencies and other service calls. Regular maintenance and timely replacement of apparatus is key to the District’s reliability and quick response times. The typical lifespan of emergency response apparatus is 15 years and/or approximately 150,000 miles.

Capital Improvement Bond

TVF&R's capital improvement bond is purchasing replacement apparatus over time, as existing front-line engines reach their 15-year age or 150-000-mile threshold. The opening of Station 50 in Tigard as well as the replacement of West Linn stations required the purchase of new apparatus. The bond also paid for a new ladder truck and a rescue vehicle in Sherwood.

New and replacement apparatus purchased over time as part of the bond include:

  • Nine Engines
  • Two Trucks
  • Two Water Tenders
  • Eight Transport Rescues
  • One Heavy Rescue
  • Two Tiller Trucks
