OTHER INFORMATION This truck was purchased by the Fire Department Association. It was a former NU truck. The Association had the truck painted red, striped and lettered, and purchased the 250 gallon Poly tank. Members installed radios, siren, emergency lights and then built a steel skid frame for mounting of the pump and tank. The skid unit can be removed in the off (brush fire) season and the truck is then used as a utility vehicle to carry the Rescue Alive cold water/ice rescue sled and related equipment. In 2001 the step-side pick-up body was removed and a new aluminum flat bed and diamond plate tool boxes were purchased by the Association. In 2003 the Association purchased a new Darley Fire Pump. In 2005 a hitch was added for towing the HAZ-MAT trailer. A body overhaul was done in 2008 that included new fenders, hood, grille, rocker panels, and a complete paint job.
