Top Issues Facing Responders:
Riding to an emergency in an aluminum and plastic cab is like riding in an eggshell. If you ride in one of these, always know whom is driving. Most of the old time custom builders have been run out of business by the marketing of the aluminum giants. The money made in the apparatus business is made on what you the firemen do not get!
