The department is currently placing into service brand new Mercedes KrakenExo attack hose, and Mercedes Megaflo 4″ supply line. This purchase was funded through a AFG grant for $45K. We were able to replace the majority of our hose some of which was more then 30 years old.
Today, members trained at an acquired structure in the district. Training focused on vertical ventilation, and ladder evolutions.
