    (Saying this as I knock on wood)
    We've been lucky in our district, four calls on the interstate (three from careless smokers and one from a blown tire) and one hay baler that caught about half an acre on fire.

    We'd be a lot busier if the interstate were in our district. With that said, though, the other shifts had made a couple of mutual aids runs to I-40 with Oak Grove.

    Actually on Allison-Slyamore. Thats area north of Mt View to Calico Rock. We also cover large part of Izard Co and range over to 56. I am looking for a home up that way, but also want to be on a dept. So was curious to what is a good vollie dept up in Baxter Co.

    Hello 7160 - We have a combination and a solid bore handline on every engine. We use 1.75" hose, so it gives us a choice depending on the fire. Sometimes we are limited on manpower and we can use the solid bore in place of a 2.5" handline and flow about as much water without wearing the crew out. Some people love them, some hate them, same all over I suppose. Do you guys still have a that 1000' brass pole at station 1? What was it Light, Dark, Light, Light, let go! lol

    Allison - There are a lot of good vol departments in BC. MH is the only career department in the county. Gassville has an 8 hour a day chief and Bull Shoals has 2 - 8 hour guys. If you need more info just yell.

    Well, the 2006 Smeal let us down this spring. It threw a rod or some such thing while enroute to a baby locked in a car. Fortunately, the cops took care of the rescue while our engine sat on the side of the road. It spent a month or so in the shop and seems to be as good as new.

    We're ordering a new pumper in 2008 for the new second station that is supposed to open in 2009. I don't think it will be a Smeal or be on a Spartan chassis. With the new Pro-Fire service center opening up in Conway, I know where I'd put my money on what we'll be seeing in the bay.

    I *know* I responded to this post... But something seems up with the forums -- your name appearing as a non-user among the most noticeable issues.

    We're spending the cash on replacing some bunker gear as well as purchasing an extractor -- something we've never had before.

    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.
