    He maybe friends with the fire chief or firefighters and just wants to try to help the guys get support from the local citizens when they go to town hall to ask for the money to purchase the apparatus!

    To me the person to talk to is the Fire Chief and find out why he thinks a quint is the answer. Then support hos rationale. Not go on a fishing expedition online to justify a piece of equipment. As someone said earlier, if the fire departent can't come up with enough home grown reasons to justify a quint, maybe they really don;t need one.
    Crazy, but that's how it goes

    Maybe it's not too late
