October 10, 2011:
I found this article on "EPA Required Filters Making Fire Trucks Break Down":
The 10News I-Team learned San Diego City Councilwoman Marti Emerald is asking the region's congressional delegation to petition the EPA to change their rules.
The EPA forces every diesel-powered vehicle to have a filter to keep soot out of the air, including fire trucks. The filters usually burn off soot before clogging the engine, but fire trucks don't do enough long-haul driving to get hot enough to burn the soot away."Take care of yourself first. Life is too short and you never know what tomorrow or for that matter...what the next few seconds is going to bring."
