From The Chief
Chief Dan Sullivan
"We are 100% volunteer, working out of one station, delivering hazmat, EMS and structure fire response. Our apparatus has to keep up. This rescue combines three rigs in one with the heavy-duty design and handling to fly through urban streets."
Sales representative Mike Hanratty of Firematic Supply Company, Inc worked directly with West Albany Fire Department on their new Heavy Duty Rescue. Firematic is a full line sales and service distributor of fire apparatus and equipment for New York and Connecticut.
