The first electric fire truck is deployed in the US by LAFD

The Los Angeles City Fire Department (LAFD) has deployed what is believed to be the first electric fire truck in North America.

Rosenbauer, an Austrian-based fire engine manufacturer, claimed to have built “the world’s first fully electric drive fire truck,” the Rosenbauer RTX.

Back in 2019, we reported on them bringing a prototype on a tour of North America to show it to some fire departments.

The Menlo Park Fire District was the first interested in the truck and aimed to secure the first order, but the LAFD ended first on the list in February 2020. They placed an order for the electric fire engine, which starts at $900,000, but the LAFD configured a version at $1.2 million.
