From The Chief
Chief William Farhat
“We have limited mutual aid, mountainous terrain and a tourist season. We need a heavy-duty truck that blasts through impossible conditions without straining manpower. Our newest Pierce is a continuation of the mission-critical performance we need - years after delivery."
