CAL FIRE uses the four-wheel drive Model 34 Type 3 wildland fire engine to enable greater access to California's rugged and often remote terrain. The engine has interior seating for five personnel and is equipped with a 500 gallon booster tank, a 2-stage, PTO driven fire pump with the potential of delivering 500 gpm, a 180 gpm auxiliary fire pump, and other specialized fire fighting equipment.
