Without a doubt, We will put Truck 42 wherever she needs to go and we’ll do whatever to get the job done! But our equipment is never put back dirty! In the light of day, the ladder on 42 still needed some TLC. As you can tell, all of the nooks and crannies are hard to get and it takes time. Today, all of the soot covered grease and oil was removed and a fresh coat re applied!
Less than 5 minutes after everything was cleaned up and members headed into get ready for the night/ wash up, they’re back out the door for a fire alarm. Engine 45 and Truck 42 responded with 7 volunteers.
Four hours on scene + two and a half hours of cleanup back at the firehouse = Some B.E.A.T. Firemen!! Thankfully, there’s always pizza to follow. Back in service and ready to respond to the next emergency! Special thanks to Greene Township for allowing us to use your Steam Jenny to get Truck 42 back to her beautiful self.
Special thanks to the Franklin County Coroner’s Office for providing rehab services at today’s barn fire. Their dedication to the success of our volunteer fire department is superior. It really takes a village to keep the fire service in operation. Help when and how you can!
