March 13, 2017
 

Progress continues to be made towards getting the rescue squad in service. The last of the drawer inserts was completed for the air tools in the mounted tool box. New hand lights were installed in the rear walk-in. The cribbing is nearing completion, with over 170 pieces that have been cut, sanded, painted, and handles attached. The unit is having the remainder of its emergency and scene lights finished being upgraded to LED. It has also had parts of the Amkus hydraulic system installed. The unit will be a few more weeks before its ready for training. Stay posted for more updates.
