Engine 209 is the only KME apparatus in the fleet!



Station 9 is a pretty diverse task force with rigs manufactured by E-ONE (Squad 9, Front), KME (Engine 209, Middle), and American LaFrance (Truck 9, Rear)!

Engine 209 has a long history in which the apparatus formerly served Sequoia Fire Department as Engine 1 and was first due for all structural calls. Ironically, Engine 209 was originally a Castle Beach Fire Department engine company that never saw service because of a manufacturer's error. So it was returned to KME and the department went to the next bidder, Pierce MFG. At the same time, Sequoia Fire Department was looking to replace their 22 year old Ford/FMC engine company. When they heard that FDCB was returning the KME engine, Sequoia Fire Chief Brampton inquired about the possibility to acquire the returned engine. After negotiations, KME and Sequoia Fire Department were able to come to an agreement where KME would make several changes to fit the department's protocol and Sequoia Fire Department would acquire the apparatus at a lower cost than the original price. In late 2016, the city of Sequoia was integrated into the city of Castle Beach and this particular apparatus ironically became a Castle Beach fire engine. Engine 209 was originally designated as Engine 6, before moving to 9 house.
