We continue to outfit the new engine. We budgeted this year to outfit 2 compartments with the Pac Trac tool mounting system. This allows for the secure storage of tools and to increase the storage capacity of our compartments.
In addition, we have added reflective striping on top of the aluminum mounts. As you can see previously when the compartments are open there is no reflectivity at night. With these additions this increases the reflective surface of the truck for night operations. This increases firefighter safety on scenes.
The cost for these additions was just over $2000 for the hardware and was cut and installed by RVFD members. It’s donations from people like you that allow us to continue to improve our equipment to better serve the people of Retreat and Navarro County.
