Engine 10 is the oldest piece of apparatus owned by Station 10. E-10 is used to respond to calls about vehicle fires, illegal burns, brush fires and structure fires within District 10. E-10 carries 2 1/2 inch, 3 inch, and 5 inch hose in addition to two preconnect lays of 1 3/4 inch hose, each lay being 200 feet in length. E-10 also has a reel of forestry 1 1/2 inch hose with a forestry nozzle. Four bottles of air for use with Self Contained Breathing Apparatus(SCBA) are carried on E-10. Many of our hand tools used at structure fires are carried by E-10, such as our axes and pike poles. Engine 10 is capable of drafting water from dry hydrants. Engine 10 has a 1,000 gallon water tank.
