It’s Electric! (It Being the Los Angeles (CA) Fire Department’s New Apparatus)

An E-ONE electric apparatus.

The Los Angeles (CA) Fire Department is getting its first electric fire truck and hopes to put it into service in early 2022, reports hotcars.com.

A more eco-friendly and quieter vehicle, the electric apparatus boasts many of the same features of traditional fire trucks. An entire electric fleet isn’t practical, and they have some flaws, such as their engines can’t exceed the power and benefits of gas-powered trucks, the report says.

The benefits, though, are a smoother and clearer line of firefighter communications, less pollution, and less chance for combustion, according to the report.
