California has nearly 900 fire stations, and they stay busy year-round, especially during fire season. Of the roughly 28,000 firefighters in the state, about a third belong to volunteer fire companies. California has more employed firefighters than any other state, too, reflecting the great demand in a state where fires burned through more than 4 million acres in 2020.
Most volunteer operations have limited funds and need to search for used fire engines to stay within their budgets. However, you don’t have to settle on quality while looking for the right price.
Fenton Fire Equipment has high-quality, used fire trucks for sale in California. You can find a range of trucks in like-new condition from many of the top names in the industry. We can also assist you with finding the right fit for your fire company and offer help with buying, financing and shipping your equipment.

Keep in mind that the newest vehicles for sale are listed at the top of our pages, with the oldest closer to the bottom.
Used Fire Engines and Pumpers for Sale in California
Pumpers, also referred to as fire engines, are the main vehicles firefighters use. They have a water tank, pump, hoses and other equipment that allow firefighters to get right to work putting out fires when they arrive at the scene. Sometimes fire stations use engines on rescue or medical emergency missions, too.
California firefighters can recognize the best brands in the business. We only sell used fire engines and pumpers made by top manufacturers, so our selection includes Pierce, Seagrave, Spartan and other top-of-the-line engines. If you are searching for used pumpers for sale with 1,000-gallon tanks or side-mount pumpers, you can find them in our listings.
Used Tankers for Sale in California
Tankers take the water to the fire, giving firefighters a way to fight fires on location.

When you have a larger tanker, you have a better chance of saving lives and property as you battle a blaze.
The used tankers we list for sale can hold 1,000 to 3,000 gallons of water. We only stock tankers from top brands, such as Peterbilt, Pierce and Freightliner. When you buy from one of the best names in the business, you can feel confident your tanker will hold up to repeated use. People are counting on you to fight fires in California, and you can count on our tankers to help you do your job.
