New Boat Support Unit Project is Full Speed Ahead

September 9, 2022

Nearly a year ago the department suffered a critical mechanical failure of our then Utility Truck, a quick decision was made to purchase a new unit to replace our Boat Support Unit and move our current Boat Support Unit over to being our Utility Truck, we purchased a RAM 3500 Truck from Woodhouse in Nebraska, we then selected to have the vehicle upfitted with a Reading Utility Body, with current pandemic delays it took nearly eight months for the unit to settle here in New Market. The vehicle will be undergoing much additional work to prepare it for decades of emergency service the unit has been to Line-X of Frederick and is scheduled to stop at Trick Trucks of Frederick and Airport View Signs next, all before going to Priority Install of Gaithersburg for final touches. We are very excited for the service delivery improvements this unit will bring to our department and those in need. Apparatus purchases like this would not be possible without the continued support of our community and those actively partaking in our fundraising events. Stay posted for additional updates!
