Kokomo Fire Department's New Rescue Arrives

On Friday, September 3rd, 2010, Hackney Emergency Vehicles delivered the department's brand new heavy rescue truck.  The truck was on display the following day during the Pink Heals Tour event held at Station #1. 

The truck then had to have it's radio installed followed by being marked and lettered.  After the radio was installed and marking & lettering had been completed, the equipment from the old truck was transferred to the new truck.  The truck was then placed into service as Rescue 1 at 08:00 on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010.  It was dispatched on it's first run, a motor vehicle accident, approximately 15 minutes later.
