PVFD has purchased another rig! It is a 2019 Pierce Velocity TDA (Tractor Drawn Aerial), and is expected to be delivered before December. This has just been revealed by the department, even though the order must have been placed months ago. Further news and specs are expected to come in coming weeks.
AFD is attempting to purchase rigs, but the current stock market drag has both AFD and PVFD struggling to come up with the funds. Officials of the two departments hope to have at least one new rig apiece before cold sets in for good. Both departments are looking to purchase heavy rescues and possibly another engine for AFD.
