Advance FD puts innovative truck in service

What could become a nationally recognized way of rapidly deploying hydraulic rescue tools is the central feature of the Advance Fire Department’s new rescue truck.

Designated Rescue 51, the Ford F-550 4x4 chassis includes innovative designs developed by AFD members and the first arrow board of its kind installed on a fire truck in the United States.

“This was custom-designed for us,” AFD Chief Jim Caldwell said Tuesday while showing off the apparatus, which is based at AFD’s Station One in Advance.
