  • Saturday afternoon the truck made its first run to a trailer and pickup truck that was hauling straw that caught fire which also caught 2 fields on fire. The neighboring department called us and the truck performed absolutely great! It is finally nice to have a brush/grass truck that works and can kick butt! It got all dirty and muddy the first time, its first run initiation . The guys that worked the truck were very impressed. Just wanted to share.

  • Over the last couple of years we have shown the "Attack 1" you built for us to lots of Emergency Responders and other folks. They are always amazed at the different kinds of missions it is capable of and quality of workmanship. The apparatus has really made a difference in what we can provide to our patrons.

  • Being 58 years old and having been a volunteer for 22+ years I totally agree with you on the issue of being able to ride ON the truck rather than walking along the side or behind. I absolutely hate driving a squad at a grass fire with a fellow firefighter walking somewhere beside my truck- not knowing exactly where he is at all times and fearing that I might run over him. I also agree with the fast moving grass fire being uncontrollable with the walk along method. Good luck in your effort to change the "good old ways" of fighting wildland fires and hopefully we can move on to the 21st Century.
