On November 4th, 2016, Manitou Springs Fire Department took delivery of a 2016 Rosenbauer Commander engine. For the last year, MSFD has worked through custom designs and inspected the engine multiple times before reaching this day. The engine will replace Engine 1011, a 1995 Becker engine that has served Manitou Springs for the last 21 years.
The new engine has four wheel drive, a short wheel base, and a tight turn radius for the narrow back roads of Manitou.
We appreciate the support of the community and Manitou Springs City Council, and look forward to using Engine 1011 for years to come.
