From The Chief


Fire Chief Christopher P. Riley

"This rig is the flagship of our fleet. It's also the only rescue for the city. It runs on every structure fire, not just in the first due, and also takes care of all the technical rescues throughout the county. We shot for the moon when bidding our Heavy Duty Rescue, and Pierce is the only one that could build exactly what we wanted."
