Equipment

Our mission with equipment is to house the minimum number of vehicles necessary to provide all-hazards response in our challenging district. We currently have eight vehicles in our fleet consisting of:

  • Ambulance 121 - 2006 Ford Ambulance
  • Brush 121 - 1970 FEPP 2.5 Ton
  • Brush 122 - 1984 AM General 6x6
  • Engine 121 - 1994 Chevy Kodiak
  • Squad 121 - TBD
  • Squad 122 - Ford Expeditions 4x4
  • Tender 121 - 1984 Volvo Tender
  • Tender 122 - 1984 AM General 6x6

The Gateway-Unaweep Fire Department plans to exchange the three 1984 units (Brush 122, Tender 121, Tender 122) for one late-model tender. We are happy to announce that we've been awarded a 2017 Colorado Emergency Medical and Trauma Services Grant to fund the acquisition of a Toyota Tacoma, to be labeled Squad 121, that will allow response to the remote 4WD areas of our district, which we were previously lacking.
