Are you kidding me? They ( Columbia SC ) are trying to cut expenses but
how are they going to do that?They are going to use there engine as a
reserve and there 100' platform Tower as a first response unit.
Seriously? This is going to save money? I don't know a lot about the
specs. of fire apparatus but as far as I know an engine gets a whole lot better fuel mileage than a tower right? I understand about having to find ways to save money but is this really the best way it can be done? here's the video so you all can watch and say what you think about it
