The Western Taney County Fire Protection District placed its second Brush/Service truck in service at Fire Station 7. The vehicle is designed to respond to natural cover fires, medical calls and service company in the North central portion of the fire district.
This truck does function as a “normal” brush truck and carries ALS medical gear. In addition, it carries all service company equipment required by ISO except for the extension and roof ladders. The district also has a heavy rescue truck responding from Fire Station 1 as the light and air unit, however there was a need to shorten the response distance to improve the Insurance Service Office (ISO) credit.
