The two fire engines are out-of-date compared to the rest of the BFD's fleet, but they will be able to help the city of Cap-Haitien in Haiti, while the country continues its recovery from the devastating 2010 earthquake.

The ownership of the two engines was transferred to the Dorchester House Multi Service Center so they could transfer it to Haiti.

Boston Mayor Thomas Menino supported the donation, as did the Boston City Council.
