E-32 is still getting the initial wiring and ready for placement on the rolling engine/chassis. The body is in the same spot getting some handrails installed and the compartments look painted with Zolotone splatter paint. The body should be installed around the same time the cab will be and you should see an update following our Mid-Inspection Trip.
E-32 is currently in the process of pre-wiring of the lights, switches and major equipment components prior to being mated to the chassis. Paint is complete for both the Cab, Body, Pump and Chassis. Theses items should be mounted sometime within this week and some of the committee members will be heading to Wisconsin for Mid-Inspection. Hopefully we will get out there to see them drop the poly ... (Full Story & Photos)
In the photos below you can see the progression of E-32 and SQ-3. It does appear the department committee members will be out at Pierce, nearly the same time to complete final inspections of both.

Now every year the guys and gals from Bay District love to see all the different costumes that the kids are wearing this year so they were set up in the bays of station 3 to be prepared to get scared tonight.

I will add those photos Mid-Inspection Photos tomorrow but to satisfy those curious with the progress of the two new incoming units I will add those photos given to us by Pierce.
Got to tell you about this picture. One of the best I have ever taken and here is why. This little boy was in the wheelchair but he dreamed of getting in a fire truck. Well Firefighter Stilley picked him up and carried him through the piece. This young man was loving it. It's what we do......

Well here we are finishing up fire prevention week or should I say fire prevention month as it seems to run for a whole month instead of just a week as in the past. This year the two stations 3 and 9 visited 8 elementary schools and 8 day care centers in our first due. The total students were over 4,000 with a total of over 500 kids in the day care centers. Mr. Fairfax told me we did over 27 activities ... (Full Story & Photos)

A few members of the committee will head out to Wisconsin to inspect the truck on Thursday and Friday, in which we hope to see the body just being ... (Full Story & Photos)
