Apparatus

In the fire service, emergency vehicles, such as ambulances, fire trucks, utility vehicles, and specialty units, are all referred to as “apparatus”. The FCVFD operates an array of apparatus out of Station 6 that fall into a few broad categories:

  • Apparatus owned 100% by FCVFD and staffed only by volunteers including a fire engine, two ambulances, two utility vehicles, and a specialty light and air unit
  • Our medic unit, Medic 106, which is owned 100% by FCVFD but is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by Arlington County Fire Department personnel, with supplemental staffing by volunteers
  • Engine and Truck 106, which are owned by the City of Falls Church and staffed by Arlington County personnel, with supplemental staffing by volunteers
