By Captain Matthew Thews
March 23, 2017
 

The rescue squad has returned from Priority Install, where the new LED lights were installed. The new LED lights are a vast improvement over older halogen and strobe models. The units has been in the station for a few days getting more mounting work completed. Most of the Amkus tools were mounted, as well as axes and sledges. The unit will be going for lettering and striping on Friday. Amkus reel and pump installs will continue next week. We are working hard to get the unit in service on Sunday April 16, 2017.
