    That's a shame. Spent about a 1/2hr talking to Snozzle/Crash Rescue rep at FDIC. Nice Guy. Great history lesson on the snozzle development history and how Crash Rescue acquired.

    Yeah this is great news. Now if a department decides they want a Snozzle, they don't have to worry about having a choice of apparatus builders.

    I just wish they would "Acquire" a firm that actually knows how to build a quality, stable, long lasting aerial ladder.

    Is that too much to ask?

    Everything I state on here is to support and aid my fellow firefighters. Everything I post is my opinion only, and in no way should be taken as an official opinion of any Company, Department, or Municipality I represent... oh and this includes Pierce Mfg, as so their legal department has advised me; since they apparently also invented the right to control "Free Speech".

    They WERE doing business with such a firm(Smeal). They chose to go another direction. Which was good for Smeal. To the best of my knowledge, Smeal has never had a aerial failure. T.C.
