After much anticipation, the Green Tree Volunteer Fire Company has taken delivery of its new heavy-duty rescue truck! The new “Quantum” chassis rescue built by Pierce Manufacturing replaced the current 1993 International rescue, and provides us with much needed space and additional functionality.
Our firefighters (all volunteer) have dedicated countless hours towards training, and collectively hold certifications in many rescue-related disciplines including: vehicle and special vehicle rescue, confined space rescue, rope rigging and rappelling rescue, hazardous materials, large-area search, and first-aid. In order to utilize these skill sets, you need equipment – lots of it.
While the old rescue vehicle was too small to carry all of our specialized gear, the new truck will allow us to arrive on scene with everything we need to get the job done. We think of it as a giant “tool box on wheels.” In addition to its bigger size, the new rescue offers other key safety advantages for our members such as better highway visibility, automatic chains (for snow-covered roads), improved lighting, and both front and side-curtain airbags.
This vehicle would not be serving on the streets of Green Tree without the ongoing support of our borough council members and the borough manager. We ask that the next time you run into one of these borough officials you take a moment to thank them for their ongoing commitment to keeping our community safe and prepared.
