Countryside maintains an extensive fleet of modern firefighting and emergency medical services apparatus to serve the community. Most of the apparatus in the diverse fleet is equipped to be multi-functional. This provides more efficient service for the various types of emergencies the District’s personnel encounter. Apparatus radio designations follow a countywide system that indicates the type of apparatus and the department and station that houses the apparatus. All of Countryside’s apparatus are equipped with emergency medical equipment and automated external defibrillators (AEDs) so the crews can provide immediate life-saving assistance no matter which vehicle they are in.
