Station 28 - Maintenance Shop

2300 Parrott Way  * Kelso WA 98626  * 360.578.5219

Dirk Carner, Lead Mechanic
David Green, Mechanic

Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue's maintenance shop has over 30 years combined experience in the heavy truck and emergency vehicles industry.  They provide routine and emergency repairs and maintenance for all of our apparatus.  During the year, each piece of apparatus is required to have an annual service completed.  Maintaining the apparatus of Cowlitz 2 is a never-ending job. They provide all of the services to maintain an efficient emergency response fleet for Cowlitz 2 Fire & Rescue.

In the Spring of 2002, we were able to install a 12,000 gallon in-ground tank to serve as a test pit.  This enables our mechanics to perform annual pump testing, as well as pump troubleshooting at our shop without having to contract with an industry for the use of their "fire ponds".  This has proven to be a cost savings and frees up staff time since it can all be taken care of by our mechanics.

Apparatus at this station:
2 - Service Trucks

Our mechanics are certified in the following areas:
EVT Certification
Water Pumps (fire)
Allison Automatic Maintenance
Foam Systems
Pump Testing
Nozzles and Valves
Emergency Vehicle Electronics
Aerial Maintenance
Ground Ladder Testing

The average cost to service a fire engine is approximately $1,025.69.  The average cost to service an ambulance is $508.41.  We have expanded our shop from 800 square feet to 4,000 square feet.  Our mechanics now have the ability to raise vehicles for a better inspection of the undercarriage which speeds up the time taken to troubleshoot a problem.
