This is our special services truck. This is a 2004. The fire department purchased the truck from fundraising and our yearly fund drive donations back in 2008 and then donated it to the Boughs. Then we received a grant to purchase the brush fires skid unit with a 300-gallon water tank and hose real. This truck is primarily used for quick medical care responses with EMS / ambulance assistance on more urgent medical calls where a few extra hands are needed or EMS has a delay in getting to the scene. More fire departments are being called upon to provide quick medical care than years past due to the over whelming demand put on the EMS services of any given City, Township or own. However, this piece has been more of a multi-purpose truck for extra tools and equipment.
