From The Chief

Fire Chief David Cash 

"Our new pumper is really a game-changer for our department. Our fleet was aging and in turn costing us money and time in repairs. With this Pierce pumper’s service life and powerful engine, plus extras like a hydraulic tool set in the front bumper, we’re getting the high quality and reliability we need to advance our response."
