Rescue Engine 33 Backs Into Firehouse for the First Time
ONE-YEAR AND SEVENTEEN DAYS AFTER THE LOSS OF THE ORIGINAL RESCUE ENGINE 33, THE NEW RESCUE ENGINE 33 BACKS INTO HER NEW HOME-
On Monday May 23rd, 2016 at 1400 hours, the new 2016 Pierce Arrow XT HDRP, soon to be in-service as Rescue Engine No. 33, backed into the Firehouse on Landover Road for the first time.
Over the next weeks to follow, several items will need to be completed prior to the unit being placed in-service. This will include tool/equipment mounting, extensive training for the drivers/members, etc.
Several members spent countless time on the development of the specification, meetings, in-process changes, etc. The rig itself is largely a representation of what allowing riding/operational members input on the design and layout can do for the operational efficiency of the unit.
As with everything the Kentland VFD prides itself on, the members are what makes the organization strong.
The unit will be dedicated shortly and the event will be advertised as details are confirmed.
