Fire Truck Project: 

  • On May 23, 2023, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors authorized and approved the ownership transfer of the 2002 Type I Saulsbury Fire Engine Asset 11-815 VIN#4S7AT40942C042303 from the Riverside County Fire Department surplus fleet to the Indio Rotary Club. The Club is in the process of preparing the fire truck, which includes adding the required equipment and hoses, making a few repairs, adding some signage, and then will donate the truck to the town of San Juan BautistaTuxtepec in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico which currently does not have a working fire truck.
