Cape Coral Fire Dept. welcomes 'Engine 5' to the ranks

On Monday afternoon, Cape Coral Fire Department's Station 5 welcomed its newest member with a special ceremony.

Not every firefighter that walks through the doors of the station receives such an honor. But, this was a special occasion, as the Department christened its newest fire engine, "Engine 5".

The new state-of-the-art pump truck comes equipped with a 450hp Cummings engine and can pump 1,500 gallons per minute, hold 1,000 gallons of water, and carries 3,500 feet of hose.

Cape Fire Dept. kicks off 3rd annual 'Keep the Wreath Green' campaign

The Cape Coral Fire Department’s “Keep the Wreath Green” fire safety campaign began on Tuesday, December 1.

For the third year, Cape Coral firefighters have placed a wreath illuminated with green bulbs at Fire Station 4, located at 2007 Santa Barbara Boulevard. If a preventable fire such as cooking, smoking, space heaters, candles, etc. occurs between December 1 and January 1, one of the green bulbs will change to red. The goal is to keep the wreath lights green. For the past two years, the campaign ended with the wreath displaying five red bulbs.
