New addition to the fleet!

We are excited to announce the newest addition to our fleet.  Built in Louisiana, this Type 3 engine will be used to respond to wildland fires and other emergencies in the remote areas of our district.  This engine will also at times respond across the state to large fire incidents.  95% of the funding for this apparatus was obtained though a FEMA grant written by one of our Firefighters.
