Provo Fire & Rescue has a modern fleet of Fire/Medical response apparatus and each of our staffed Fire Stations is equipped with state of the art apparatus. Prior to the 2002 Winter Olympics, a new concept of leasing instead of purchasing fire equipment was developed. Every five years, Provo will roll their fire apparatus fleet over and lease new equipment. This has worked to benefit Provo City and the citizens. Our goals are to provide the best state-of-the-art equipment and to use the same basic drive trains and chassis to keep repair costs at a minimum.
