Rescue Compartment Upgrade To Wagon

Yesterday, the Engine-Tanker returned back from 10-8 Emergency Vehicle Services after getting a rescue compartment make over.  Over the past couple years additional equipment has been purchased expanding the rescue capabilities of BVFD27.  With the addition of a Telescoping Rescue Ram and Rescue Struts, it was determined that a total new start to the compartment was needed.  The new design with allow for safer storage and quicker deployment of the tools.  BVFD27 would again like to thank the local resident for the donation of the Rescue Struts and Doggie Bags to BVFD27.  “Neighbors Helping Neighbors”.  Rescue Compartment
