Monday drill night, further drilling with the new Tower. Several locations within the first due were picked with different learning points in mind. Regarding positioning of the rig to maximize scrub area and operations with obstacles in play.
The engine companies tagged along while drilling on scene size ups, mapping, building construction, and discussing attack line stretching options.

Thank you Specialized Fire Equipment Service for the fine work!Palmyra Tower 1.......Ready to "DO WORK!" "TRUCK WORK!" The Truck Commitee from Palmyra Fire, spent many hours developing a "Truck " Specification that would serve the Department and the "Citizens" it protects for many years to come! In that spec, they wrote that "All equipment mounting, shall be performed at Specialized Fire Equipment Services". Meetings were held, and equipment location was determined, compartment by compartment. The Tower and equipment was delivered to the SFES Shop and work commenced. Fire Department members visited the shop often, to check on progress, and to listen to input from the experienced fabricators, at SFES, as to the best methods for equipment deployment and storage. The end result?? I would say that the Citizens Fire Company of Palmyra, hit a "Home Run" with the new Seagrave/Aerialscope! Thanks to Deputy Chief Travis Duncan for his insight on this project, and thank to the Officers and Members of Palmyra Fire for bringing "Truck 1" to Specialized Fire! "Best Damn Equipment Mounting Around!" ... See moreSee less
