NAS Defender 90 Firetruck

Granville, OH

A few years ago, Granville Fire Department decided to replace their aging Willys-Jeep grass firetruck. The short list of finalists consisted of a Hummer, 3/4 ton truck or a Land Rover Defender 90. The Hummer was ruled out because it was too wide for the tight quarters the firemen needed to operate. The 3/4 ton truck was vetoed because it required an extensive (and expensive) list of modifications to be useful as a fire truck. The winner was the nimble Defender 90, who's only modification, in addition to the standard fire equipment, was upgrading the springs to heavy duty.

The Grainville Fire Defender 90 spends its life as a grass truck, specializing in rapid response for small wildfires as well as search and rescue. In the winter time, after the fire season has abated, the rear tank is removed and the Defender provides assistance on medic runs. (photos and info courtesy of Josh White)
