TROY, NY (August 19, 2021) – Mayor Patrick Madden today announced the Troy Fire Department (TFD) has taken delivery of a new fire engine, the latest addition to the department’s fleet of emergency vehicles. The new engine will replace an 18-year old fire apparatus, and is the third new fire engine TFD has deployed since 2019.
Mayor Madden said, “Public safety remains a primary concern of my administration, and we remain focused on providing the necessary vehicles, equipment, and tools to our fire service to keep Troy residents & families safe. The continued replacement of decade-old fire apparatus will ensure TFD’s emergency readiness and help the department respond to emergencies in South Troy and across our city.”
Fire Chief Eric McMahon said, “The entire department is excited to place this new fire engine into service this month, replacing another aging fire apparatus. Deployment of this new engine will preserve the department’s firefighting and emergency response capacities to protect the health and safety of Troy residents, families, and businesses.”

The new apparatus will be placed into service as Engine 6 at the Canal Street Fire Station in the city’s South Troy neighborhood. Designed and built by Rosenbauer America, Engine 6 is the Troy Fire Department’s third new fire engine since 2019.
