This month we will continue to focus our training on the Lake Emergencies and if you see our boat out on the lake give us a wave. As always, we are here for you day and night…just give us a ring!

This month we took delivery of our new Brush Truck that replaces our two older WWII brush trucks. (Both those trucks were purchased by HFD members so you may still see the around town)

This is Brush 4 and is now in service at our Station 4 ready for the next call. This new truck will give us the access to all of the tight spots we need to get into and allow for easier responses throughout the town. Brush 4 is a 2024 RAM 3500HD, with an AREVS 225 gallon custom skid unit from (Anchor-Richey Emergency Vehicle Services, Inc.). It comes with a Hale Pump / Briggs & Stratton 18 HP gasoline engine with a flow rating from 70 GPM @ 150 PSI to 240 GPM to 25 PSI. As you can see, it still needs to be lettered but we are excited to put it through the paces at the next brush fire. Thank you to all who worked so hard to get this truck in service.

Lastly, we had announced earlier in the Month about a hiring event and we have completed all of the interviews and testing. In August we will have some new faces joining our Part – Time staff and we couldn’t be more excited, Thank you to all who applied and we are looking forward to working with them.
