From The Chief
Fire Chief John Johnston
“Fewer blind spots on the outside. More room on the inside. Because of the shorter wheelbase of our PUC rescue pumper, we can breeze through our tight, winding streets with ease while providing an expanse of space for both driver and officer. We know we’ve got the flexibility to respond to a number of situations – from major interstate accidents to college campus emergencies.”
