According to a report from Discover Humboldt, the Watrous Fire Department (WFD) in Saskatchewan, Canada, has upgraded its fleet to now include a new Brush 5 Wildland Operations Vehicle. This new unit will replace the WFD’s 1976 dodge, also known as Engine 2.

The truck was purchased through Rural Municipalities within the WFD’s response zone. At just over $300,000, the F-550 Cabin Chassis offers a number of features including several storage compartments for equipment and the ability to accommodate five firefighters.

In addition, one of the exterior seats has a roll cage to prevent injury. Lastly, water nozzles adorn the front bumper to spray the perimeter of any grass fire.
