Pasadena, California Fire Department switches to Neste MY Renewable Diesel
The Pasadena Fire Department, a California city northeast of Los Angeles, has switched much of its fleet of apparatus from operating on petroleum diesel to using Neste MY Renewable Diesel™. The department plans to transition all its fleet apparatus to renewable diesel by 2019.
The switch to renewable diesel fuel has contributed to the city’s goal of reducing its carbon footprint.
“We have received very positive feedback from personnel assigned to the apparatus. Firefighters and engineers have reported a reduction in vapors they are exposed to while fueling the trucks. It has been a huge step forward for the health and safety of our firefighters and community,” says Pasadena Fire Chief Bertral Washington.
IPC (USA), Inc., headquartered in Santa Ana, California, is the exclusive distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to the Pasadena Fire Department. Using exclusive distributors ensures supply chain integrity and guarantees the high quality of the fuel.
