Mahalo to the KFD and the KFD Apparatus Committee for their work on the design of this truck and for bringing this essential tool to the safety and protection of Kaua’i and its people. said Kaua’i Mayor Derek Kawakami.

According to KFD, the new Truck 2, marked at $ 102,893 from the County General Fund, replaces the last truck at the Kapa’a Fire Station after reaching its 14-year lifespan. The KFD Apparatus Committee, led by firefighter Nohili Vierra, began work in 2019 to bring this truck to the island.

“This truck is designed for service here on Kaua’i and is equipped with special features, including surf racks, fire pump, water tank and hose reel,” said the head of KFD, Steven Goble. “We are fortunate to have Truck 2 for our island, which serves as a critical security response platform for land and sea missions.”
