Utility5 is a Dodge 1500 pick-up truck, 4x4, with 2500 coil springs in the rear to help carry the load of the rescue equipment needed for extrication.

This was originally the police departments utility truck to deliver barricades, cones and other supplies for the police. After Engine 5 was deemed unsafe to operate due to the back compartment areas starting to break and lean to one side. The police Utility truck was given to the fire department for a quick solution for a rescue equipment vehicle, until the new squad could be delivered. The members of the fire department came to like the utility truck and since the pick up truck was replacing Engine 5, they called it Utility 5. U5 is equipped with all extraction and stabilizing equipment needed for a vehicle Collision. Portable hydraulic pump, combine spreaders, cutters, struts/dogs, cribbing, lift air bags, Milwaukee saws, impact drill, grinder, portable light and stand up light, K-12 demo saw, electric chainsaw.
