The Lyon County (NV) Fire Protection District Unveils Its Two Newest Engines

The department celebrated the arrivals with the help of local kids, who helped pull the engines into the station.

According to a report from KOLO, the Lyon County (NV) Fire Protection District (LCFPD) unveiled its two brand-new fire engines at a special “push-in” ceremony at 195 East Main Street Station in Fernley on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m.

The department celebrated the arrivals with the help of local kids, who helped pull the engines into the station. A “push-in” is how firefighters typically bring a new engine into their building for the first time.

The LCFPD purchased the new engines with donations, tax revenue, and loans. LCFPD Spokesman Jim Sullivan said that the last time the department received a new engine was 33 years ago in 1988.

One of the new engines will got to Fire Station 61, while the other will go to Fire Station 62. The new engines will cover 174 square miles.
