Is the 2nd station going to be on the north side of the city? How many guys are they going to let you all get? We have had a few problems with our new E-one, but never has just quit on us. It would be nice to get rigs local so if you had problems it wouldn't be that far to go. We ordered ours through a company in damascus but they went out of business the next year.
What Happened to My user name? It just stoped working? Ive emailed Firehouse.... O well, I wanted this name three years ago. It was taken then, but now its free...
come and see
Hey guys check out firefighternation.com good site and i have seen some of you there.
All is well in Bryant, we took on our new Bronto earlier this year and it is awesome. Had a few kinks to fix when we first got it( first month), but now it is very reliable. I guess it helps since two of the E1/Sunbelt techs work for us. The city is looking to annex to the north and hopefully sometime in latter part of the year...2008, we will open a 4th station. Anyway we are accepting applications and the closing day is 11 Jan 2008.

PS...our department website is
The new station will be in the north, near the railroad overpass on Maumelle Blvd. The current station will remain as #2 until land and funding can be secured for a new station further south. Hopefully that won't take too long as I would think the land the current station sits on is valuable enough to help fund construction.

Of course, our SAFER Act application asked for three... but we're not having the same luck with SAFER as we are with the FIRE Act.
If you wanna buy another E-One, I know where you can buy one cheap. :D
