Fire Engines for Mexico

Fire Engines for Mexico

San Bernardino – Last week, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors approved the transfer of two surplus fire engines to the Fontana Rotary Club so the club can transfer the equipment to needy communities in Mexico. The two, 1991 Startan Monarch Type I Fire Engines, will eventually find their way to fire departments in Mexicali and San Felipe. The equipment no longer meets key standards for such equipment here in the United States and as a result, are not useable by any local or state entity. “Although the two engines no longer meet stringent standards here in the U.S.,” said San Bernardino Second District Supervisor Janice Rutherford, “they still have years of useful life in them, and I am glad to know they will continue to protect lives and property thanks to our friends at the Fontana Rotary Club.”
