Fire Equipment

Most fire apparatus is custom built. The typical process can take anywhere from six months to 2 years.

 Due to the high cost of fire trucks and the need for reliable equipment; the Savage Fire Department has set up a vehicle replacement program. The program helps the Council budget for the expense and ensures the Department has the equipment it needs to respond to the community's fire emergencies.

  • Ladder trucks are to be replaced every 30 years, with a refurbishment at 15 years at 50% of the cost.
  • Engines and large trucks should be able to last 20 years, with a refurbishment at 10 years at 50% of the original purchase price.
  • Light duty trucks (brush trucks, chiefs vehicles, etc.) are to be replaced at the 10-year mark.
