Oregon State Fire Marshal announces first deliveries of type 6 fire engines
Jefferson and Lebanon fire districts first to receive engines

The Oregon State Fire Marshal is thrilled to announce the delivery of the first type 6 fire engines to the Jefferson Fire District and Lebanon Fire District. These deliveries are a milestone in the OSFM Engine Program, enhancing firefighting capabilities across Oregon.

The OSFM Engine Program purchased 76 new apparatus, including 26 type 3 engines, 20 type 6 engines, and 30 water tenders. So far, eight type 3 engines and eight water tenders were delivered to districts throughout the state. Ongoing deliveries of these apparatus will continue as the agency receives them.

"We are excited to see the first type 6 engines arrive at Jefferson and Lebanon fire districts,” Oregon State Fire Marshal Mariana Ruiz-Temple said. “This program represents a significant investment in the safety of our communities and the effectiveness of our firefighting efforts.”

The OSFM Engine Program, funded through Senate Bill 762, signed into law in 2021, is modernizing the equipment available to Oregon's structural fire service. This initiative ensures that local fire agencies have the necessary tools to effectively combat wildfires and protect lives and property.
