Hey thanks, yeah we try to keep up on our apparatus as best we can. Were currenty trying to replace our 2nd due engine but along with the rest of the country, the money just isn't there right now. Oh well... I have some family that live in Hobart and Crown Point as well. The dept. also has a couple of firefighters from those areas as well. TCSS, Dustin
