Omaha Fire Department Looks To Modernize Fleet

The equipment replacement plan will create a timeline for Omaha Fire to replace and standardize all frontline apparatus over the next eight years, and it is supported by Mayor Stothert.

The City Council must also sign off on the plan.

The plan is to buy fifty new fire rigs and rescue squads for the City of Omaha through 2029, at a cost of nearly thirty-million dollars.

Eighteen vehicles will be replaced this year at a cost of almost 11-million dollars.

The money for those will come from the Capital Improvement Program, the City Capital Improvement Fund, and the Contingent Liability Fund.

The Mayor says the replacement plan anticipates continued growth and demand for emergency services in Omaha.
