    Our new fire engineNew Fire Engine – The Monterey Fire Department received delivery of a 2015 Pierce Fire Engine on October 29, 2014. The engine will replace the current 21 year old Hi-Tech Fire Engine. The technology on fire engines has greatly improved in numerous ways, including safety standards and California state emissions standards. The new engine is fitted with airbags and well as a state of the art lighting system. The lighting system employs GPS that directly communicates with traffic signals to change the signals to green for safer crossing of intersections as well as provide for faster response times. Additionally, the new design and lighting system allows for better public visibility of the Engine in traffic for faster response for those moving out of the way of the engine.
