E773, aka Engine 773, a four wheel drive Type 3 wildland engine, was dispatched to the Kincaid Fire on October 25th, accompanied by four of our fire fighters. Our Mi Wuk Sugar Pine Fire District is fully covered with remaining staff. E733 is designed to go off road whereas other engines are far more cumbersome.
I mention that E773 is a Type 3 to emphasize the fact that our station now has a variety of engines, each with special features.
As the days go by my plan is to feature each engine and its capabilities.
Please keep our firefighters and all others who are on the line,fighting the Kincaid Fire as well as others, in your thoughts and prayers.Leave a comment
