The 2023 Brackets

We encourage all departments to spread the word for extra votes!

Past winners have been successful at rallying their whole community in support of their local fire department, the hope of winning money for a local charity, and the braggin rights that go along with it all. Anyone can vote, so spread the word and pick your favorite trucks!


This years 32 participating departments were randomly selected from qualifying vehicles, and sorted into the four following brackets: Gold, Red, Silver and Black. If your department is participated, be aware of when your match takes place. The tournament brackets will be updated throughout the tournament.


First round is rapid-fire! — Four matches a day until we land at 16 remaining departments. All matches will take place on Mondays through Thursday. Polls for each match will begin at 10am each day and stay open for 24 hours, giving you plenty of time to round up your troops for support! A final match up between the top two departments will take place on April 3rd.


Qualifying apparatus need to have been purchased in the last year and not participated in a previous year. This is a brand new batch of 32 fire apparatus from all across the Bay Area, Central and Northern California.


This year we are really focusing on the charities and getting the communities involvement to support these charities. The winning department this year recieves $1,000 towards the charity of their choice! The winning vehicle will also be awarded a commemorative badge to mark the honor of a well-won content.
