A 2006 Dodge Ram was recently purchased to haul the new trailer. This trailer is equipped with wildland firefighting equipment and land rescue gear as well as the Polaris Ranger 6x6 which is capable of both fighting wild fire and transported a patient from remote locations.
The lettering on this truck was generously purchased by the local VFW Post 655.
