New Arrival

The fire station here at the airport just took delivery of a new ARFF truck. This Panther is quite a beast. Independent coil over suspension, 1500 gallons of water, 200 gallons of 6% AFFF , 150 Pounds of Purple-K powder and all kinds of gadgets to help put out aircraft fires and rescue people faster.


  1. I'm impressed. Wonder what it's like to drive.

  2. I'll asked the guy that drove it for it's acceptance tests. He's a volunteer in the county as well as head of Maint at the Airport so he knows a thing or two about fire fighting.
