Classified as an engine-tanker, it boasts a 1250gpm Waterous pump with a 3000 gallon booster tank within a body manufactured by Toyne of Breda, Iowa. The truck was purchased as a demo unit from VRS Sales of Clifton Park. As the district served by the company has no municipal water system, the addition of this fire truck will provide a total of 7000 gallons of water to be delivered initially to a fire scene. ETA-221 will also benefit neighboring companies, supplying a large amount of water quickly to fire scenes.

F-225 was designed primarily as a brush truck. F-225 contains the equipment needed to fight a brush fire. As it is smaller than the other trucks and four-wheel drive, it can respond to more remote locations. It has a skid unit, which is a tank and a pump mounted together. The unit is then set into the recessed area on the back of the truck. The pump is capable of pumping 700 gallons of water per minute and the tank can hold up to 200 gallons of water.

Its use can range from a boat fire to a grass or brush fire near the shoreline which may not be immediately accessible to fire trucks. MR-226 is the primary responding fire/rescue apparatus for EVFC to any emergency on the Great Sacandaga Lake during boating season within district. Neighboring agencies on the lake may also request its response through Mutual Aid. For an emergency which requires diving, Corinth and/or South Glens Falls Fire Departments have specially trained and equipped dive teams.

It can also be used for Fire Police and traffic control operations. As is does not carry a pump or water supply, it can be used where water isn't needed. This allows the resources of the other apparatus to remain available, if needed. M-227 was obtained in 2015 from the Greenfield Fire District.
MR-228 is a Sun Tracker pontoon boat purchased by the fire company from Alpin Haus, in April 2006. The boat is powered by a 50HP Mercury outboard engine.

The rescue sled is a 2001 Ski-Doo Skandic snowmobile with a toboggan that can be attached to it. The towns of Edinburg and Day are mainly forest lands with many snowmobile trails that cross through those forests.

The rescue sled can also respond to rescues on the Great Sacandaga Lake during the winter when the lake is frozen over.
