We are making good progress on the new truck. We would like to say a
special thank you to Paul's Service Center for painting our new truck for
us. After we received  the truck back it  was then taken to Fox Truck Caps
to have the cap and bed slide installed (looks good).  We also have the
siren and light bar installed already and the rest of the lights will be
installed on Saturday . Next week the truck will get lettered.  

Don't forget about  our Fall Raffle at  station 20 on November 15, 2013

there enjoying a good fun filled night out with our firefighters and their
