San­taquin Fire Chief Stephen Olson ad­dresses a group as­sem­bled out­side the San­taquin Fire/EMS Depart­ment bay to wel­come Fire En­gine 145 to its fleet. En­gine 145 is a fully equipped, struc­tural 1,500-gal­lon-per-minute pumper truck with a 1,000-gal­lon wa­ter tank ca­pac­ity. San­taquin Fire/EMS is the only Para­medic Cer­ti­fied depart­ment in south Utah County and En­gine 145 is an as­set that will serve the area for many years to come. En­gine 145 was pur­chased from Ross Equip­ment, which is an au­tho­rized dealer of Pierce Fire Trucks. The depart­ment has a long-stand­ing re­la­tion­ship with Pierce since pur­chas­ing its first en­gine for the depart­ment from them 30 years ago. This en­gine is still in use as a wild­land fire truck.
