On Thursday, November 19, the Cleveland Division of Fire welcomed two new fire engines into the Division’s response fleet. The first new engine will replace the apparatus located at Fire Station 10 on 1935 East 101 street. The second new engine will replace the apparatus located at Fire Station 39 on 15637 Lorain Avenue.
Both engines cost $380,000 apiece and a part of Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s initiative to replace, upgrade, and improve the City of Cleveland’s public safety response fleet. The previous apparatus at Station 10 will be used as a spare and the apparatus at Station 39 will be refurbished.
“These new engines are a welcome addition to the fleet,” said Fire Chief Angelo Calvillo. “The new engines will ensure that the Division of Fire continues to provide the community with a dependable, safe, state-of-the-art response fleet that enhances community service and public safety for many years to come.”
These additions represent the 15th new fire apparatus purchased under the Jackson Administration. An additional engine is schedule to arrive next month at Fire Station 11 on 7629 Broadway Avenue.
