    Default Number Our "New" Brush Truck

    Hello Forum:

    We recently acquired a "new" 5 Ton GI truck. We are in the process of building it into our new, heavy duty brush truck.

    We are offering the public a chance to number our truck.

    Go to: http://www.bowmanvfd.org/

    The poll is located on the right side about half way down.

    Have fun!

    I was gonna check "Paint it black with a number 3 on it and "Goodwrench" on the hood and require the driver to grow a moustache and wear an open face helmet with mirrored "man with No Eyes" goggle" but that option wasn't available.
    I picked 11.Good luck with your new equipment and stay safe out there.

    The engine type becomes the first number
    The priority of call out/ or the numbers of that type of enine be comes the second number
    (if you have more than one station a third number can be used to tell what sation it came from)

    Engine 64- a Type 6 Engine that is one of four.
    Tender 242- type 2 tender, one of 4, from station 2.€

    You get the idea...

    Doughesson-thanks for the suggestion, I think we are going to go with red with white lettering. Not as fancy as your idea, but a little cheaper. Pretty good idea though.

    Bushwacker-appreciate your input, but we have to go with what the county will allow. We just get to pick what is on the poll.

    Take care all.
