    Congratulations, St. Peter FD. I thought we were blessed when it "only" took us 31 years to get a new engine. Nice truck. Practice with the foam and use it. Should make a great addition to your firefighting efforts.

    You'll love the light tower. There's one on my engine, and I had to convince Sandoval to spend the money for one on 9125. It sounds like they're glad they did.

    Congrats on the rig. Looks nice. White apparatus have been growing on me.

    Was this one in Mac's display at the Trustee's show in Springfield?

    Agreed! We're solid red, and I like that - but something about white just seems "clean" to me.
