The cost of fire apparatus varies based on many factors.  KVFD typically purchases semi custom apparatus meaning that the cab and chassis is off the shelf and the equipment box is custom made to carry our set of tools.  An unequipped fire engine o this type ranges from $250,000 to $350,00.  A ladder truck will cost in the range of $550,000 to $650,000.  The typical life span for a fire engine is 10 years and for a ladder truck 15 years.  This is based on the point where the cost of maintenance is greater than the payments on a new piece of apparatus.
