From The Chief
Battalion Chief Tony Perna
"The amount of compartment space and maneuverability will improve our organization. This will allow us to carry needed equipment that we have not been able to carry before, such as our active shoot gear. Our members need to be prepared for all hazards that might come our way and they need the appropriate tools and equipment so we can protect our community."
