Utility Vehicle Coming To Station 44
Sunday, 06 January 2008
At last nights meeting members found out the news that our department has been awarded a grant through the Assistance to Firefighters Grant through FEMA (Federal Emergency Management Agency) in the amount of $19,000.00 for a utility vehicle. This would come in handy for Wildfires, Land rescues, and just those hard to reach areas of our district. This unit will most likely be called Patrol 44-14. And this would be the first of its kind to be placed in service by our station. We are very excited to purchase this vehicle. We will post more information as we get it so make sure to keep checking back.
