What an exciting day for Company 12 as we welcome home our brand new apparatus, Tanker 12! With 505hp and 3000 gallon water capacity, this new tanker is a critical addition to our fleet. It replaces our prior front line response tanker, a 1980 Pierce with just 1500 gallon capacity, that had the ominous distinction of being the oldest tanker in Washington County at 41 years old. While most of the expense was covered through a grant, our Company was required to contribute 5% of the expense and we sincerely appreciate the community donations that helped us achieve this milestone. A huge thank you to our Tanker Committee led by Mark Kopp and including Cory Lescalleet, Chad Clipp, Bob Asper, Roy Lescalleet and Scott Beckley.
