That's great news! Now if only we could get the mayor and the chief to stop showing them off to the city and at fire chief conferences across the country. My station is getting the new rescue in the article as well as one of the Bronto aerials. We're still running our 1987 rescue that leaks oil out as fast as you can put it in...let's get these rigs on the floor please!
To be fair though, I will be honest and admit that we have seen more apparatus purchases with our new chief than we have seen with any other in years. Our fleet is slowly but surely being improved...so hats off to the chief for getting us the equipment that we need...not to mention securing extra funding for us in the middle of a fixed budget cycle.
