On 1/14/2020, our new Tanker was officially ordered from Midwest Fire Apparatus. It is being build on a freight liner M2-112 crew cab chassis with a 3000 gallon water tank, 20 gallon foam tank, and 2000 GPM Hale pump. Thank you to the truck committee and the members for working diligently over the past 2 1/2 years on our replacement apparatus.
