From The Chief
Chief Thomas Higgins
“Bangor is a great example of small town America, and we're proud to protect it with Pierce fire apparatus. The basket on our new platform keeps our firefighters safer when accessing older style homes with high chimneys. And when it comes to hills, TAK-4 IFS ensures we stop shorter."
Minuteman Trucks, Inc. sales representative Ray Smith worked directly with the Bangor Fire Department on their Velocity PUC 100' heavy-duty Platform. Minuteman is a full line sales and service distributor of fire apparatus and equipment for Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
