    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.

    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.

    We currently have 17 career members with one more budgeted for next year. That will give us 18 -- enough for six per shift so we can prepare to run two companies each shift. We're also supposed to add new captains and engineers positions to prepare for two companies. 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.
