New powerful fire engines plus smaller off-road wildland engines are coming into service in some of San Mateo County's most diverse and challenging regions.

These new engines are replacing older models, many that are beyond industry standards in terms of age and mileage.

"These new engines help us better perform our core mission: protecting our residents and protecting property," said Mark Steward, assistant chief of the San Mateo County Fire Department. "They are also going to reduce maintenance costs over the long term."
