  • Introducing: The BEAST Tools

    The BEAST (Blanchat External / Interior Attack Structure Tools) allows firefighters to safely make an interior attack from the outside. This eliminates having to open up a structure or enter a hostile environment, decreasing flashover risk.

  • Just wanted to thank you and your crew for a truck that is perfect for our dept. Your/our truck is the first one out of the station on every call. House fires to garbage cans fires, from mva's to cows on the highway its running on every call. Our neighboring depts have called for mutual aid and have asked for the minuteman, and we are glad to bring it. One dept. that is auto-aided for structure fire responded one night and commented that when they turned on the highway 6 miles away that they could see the flames from there. We got into the house and let the minuteman eat and by the time they got there the fire was nothing but some heat and smoke. They thought we were going to be there all night. The CAFS system is the best thing that has happened to this dept for a long time. Again thanks for a truck that we are very proud of.
