Riverside Fire Department

Measure Z


In November 2016, the City of Riverside Fire Department identified the severity of the need to replace vehicles as they had exceeded their shelf life, mileage or hour limits, and were incurring high costs in repairs. On May 16, 2017, City Council approved a 5-year spending plan of Measure Z funding which included a one-time allocation of $14.5 million to the City of Riverside Fire Department for new apparatus and required equipment. The purchase of these units will replace the majority of the current front line apparatus while some of the aged units will become part of the reserve fleet. These top-of-the-line units come to Riverside with many new features that will support the safety of our firefighters.
