Been a while! You still around here? I have recently added the third vehicle to my apparatus fleet. 1957 Jeep utility unit. At present, I am acquiring a 1984 Chevrolet/Reading medium Squad. Hope to have it on site in early July. As with all of my untis, this one is fully equipped and operational. Coming right out of the department. I now own more apparatus than some PG companies! LOL! And all of MINE are paid for and operational! Hope to hear from you soon. Enjoy Florida!

Donald, Those are some excellent photos of trucks. My great uncle, whom helped start our local FD, was the one who got me involved with fire/rescue. It's great to see dedicated people with years of service.
