The York County Department of Fire Safety manufactures several of the fire apparatus used in the York County Fire Service. In-house construction of these fire trucks results in significant savings for York County taxpayers. (Approximately 45% to 50% cost savings over commercially manufactured trucks).
3 different types of trucks are manufactured in-house: 3,000 gallon water tankers, 4-wheel drive grass/brush trucks and equipment service trucks. Having the ability to build these trucks in-house not only provides a cost savings but also provides standardization of these trucks. Every fire department in the York County Fire Service has received a tanker, a grass/brush truck, and a service/equipment truck.
