Over the last 3 years members of the Wadesville Fire Department have been utilizing a truck committee to determine the future needs of the community. Over the last year the truck committee has recommended the purchase of a new brush rescue. This recommendation has been accepted by the membership and I am excited to announce that we have taken preliminary steps to begin the purchase and building of this apparatus. This new brush rescue will allow responding units the ability to fight field fires, combine fires, EMS calls, motor vehicle accidents, and many other types of calls. The membership as a whole are excited to see this become a reality. We have recently purchased the Ford F550 chassis and have completed the bid process for a manufacturer of the rescue box that will be installed. This manufacturer is one of the leading fire apparatus manufacturers in the United States. We will provide more information as it becomes available. If you have questions regarding this please feel free to contact me at any time. My contact number is 812-449-7869.
