Any Privet Contractors posting here?
I am a Wildland VFD Fire Fighter but also Contract with the USFS. I have a Type II 2500 Gal Tender. Any guys build there own trucks here or contract them? I built this one for fires and can't wait to get it out this year!! The last one I built was a Type III and I wanted to up grade since they seem to use more Type IIs in Eastern Washington, Okanogan area (Reg 6) . Here is a link to my Photo Site building it. Sure would like to see some more Tenders to get ideas from. Thanks, Mark
The Paper Work will Swamp you!!
If you can get past the paper work in CCR, DUNNs Number, EATIS, FMSCA, DOT, Buissness Licence, ROSS, Fire Training Certifcation, Pack Test, Records Review, USFS Paper Work, DOT Truck Inspection, USFS Truck & Equipment Inspection, USFS 2 Mil Insurance, 1 Mil Truck Insurance, Tonage & Licence Fees, Drug Testing and a couple other things, it is all about getting called out to fight fires during a few months of the summer! If you don't get called out you sure just spent a bunch of money and time for nothing!! Mark
