2022 CanAm Defender 6x6

With funding provided by State Senator Andrew Gounardes we were able to complete the complex grant process that began in 2019 and acquire a new 2022 CanAm Defender 6×6, built by RKO Enterprises . 

This advanced firefighting vehicle is packed with features to improve safety in our community: 

  • 130-gal UPF Copoly tank
  • Waterax Versax fire pump
  • Quick Quench Foam System
  • Junkin stokes rescue basket
  • Feniex lights/siren/PA

The new unit will work alongside our Brush Fire Unit 2014 ASAP (Alternative Support Apparatus) to fight brush fires and perform rescues in Gerrittsen Beach. A big thank you goes to Chief Cavanagh and the Past Chief Bogart of Broad Channel for bringing this amazing unit all the way from Indiana.
