NSCFPD has a variety of apparatus and vehicles, not just fire engines. All of the District's Fire vehicles carry emergency medical supplies and AEDs, after that, the equipment on the different vehicles varies. Driving fire engines requires a special license that most of the FPD members have obtained; the other vehicles require a regular Class C driver license.

Engine 4483 is our "most mature" piece of apparatus, a 1990 Ford "Type 1" engine. E4483 is designed primarily for structure fires but has some modifications for wildland (e.g. the ability to roll forward and pump from auxiliary pump at the same time).
Engine 4471 is a 2001 Pierce "Type 2" engine, with a 1000 gpm pump and a 500 gallon water tank. E4471 is equipped for both wildland and structure firefighting, and is the primary response vehicle for VFD staff responding from the North Station. E4471 was custom designed for TSRVFD by Chief Dan Levin, specifically for the circumstances of responding to emergencies in the wildland/urban interface of Sea Ranch. In 2010 E4471 was dedicated to Chief Levin in recognition of his long and dedicated service to the VFD and the community.
Engine 4485 is the VFD's newest fire engine, a 2010 Pierce Type 2 (elements of both wildland and structure fighting) engine. E4485 is a "contender" model engine, with an 1100 gpm pump and a 750 gallon water tank. E4485 is not a customized engine, but has been modified slightly to adapt it to the needs of firefighting and access in our area.
Squad (or "Rescue") 4432 is a 2001 Ford F550 truck. 4432 is essentially a "giant toolbox" and is the primary response vehicle used by our CAL FIRE staff for everything but fires. 4432 holds medical, extrication, cliff rescue, and other gear, including some firefighting gear and tools, but it does not have a water tank and does not carry hose.
Salvage 4436 is a 1994 GMC truck. This is a support vehicle that, like Squad 4432, is basically a big toolbox. Custom designed for TSRVFD, 4436 holds a variety of rescue and salvage equipment, including a portable generator and the connections and cable necessary to provide power and light at incident scenes, and a "cascade" system to refill pressurized air bottles. A roof-mounted, adjustable light tower is of particular use at nighttime traffic or fire incidents. In 2011, 4436 was dedicated to Walt Guenther, who for many years was the prime operator and loving caretaker of 4436 and everything in it.
Utility 4444 is a 2003 Ford F150 pickup utility truck.

Engine 4477 is a 1990 type III fire engine assigned to the Annapolis Station. It is a smaller fire engine with the ability to navigate the narrow, dirt roads found in much of Annapolis. It’s design is primarily for wildland fires but it is quite capable of starting the suppression effort of a structure fire until the bigger engines arrive.
Water Tender 4496 is 1987 International S1900, it carries 1800 gallons of water. With the challenges of obtaining water for fire suppression in rural areas having this water tender is considered a huge asset.
