Apparatus

Arcata Fire District's apparatus includes engines, a ladder truck, a water tender, command vehicles, and other specialized equipment for rescue and support functions.  Apparatus are categorized, or "typed" (i.e. Type 1, Type 2) by the capability to assist with resource ordering.  Resource typing provides emergency managers with the information they need to request and receive the specific resources to mitigate an emergency or disaster.
