well as for all that, i am not sure. i mean i dont know whats going on for all of the tools and everything. i know most was recovered when the fire was put out b/c it was pretty well contained to the cab itself. it didnt reach to the rear of the truck.

as for turnout gear, we gave it to...east amherst...maybe..i forget. but we gave all our gear to a erie county fire co to be washed for free. most of it was recovered from the racks.

as for loaners, dival let us use some hose and a few scott nxtgen airpacks (those are NICE)

well we are doing okay. i mean with fish frys and all. but the insurance company gave us 350gs, which wont pay for all the damge lost. but we should be able to cope. if everything goes right, we can make a killing for fish frys and other fund raisers. but who knows. fish frys. every friday thru april 10th if you wanna bring the fam down =) (
