Your Work In Action
We see the used fire trucks when they arrive on our campus with potential . We see them as a work in progress as our technicians work their magic. And we see them just before they leave as a great looking, functioning, vital tool for a community in need.
What we often don’t see is the fire apparatus in service protecting its new community.
However, recently we got this note from a department which recently took delivery of a refurbished, 2002 Pierce Dash 105' Quint.
Thank you Huerfano County Fire for trusting us with your business and letting us see your purchase in action.
And a BIG thank you to the whole team at BMFA that takes a truck needed a quality touch and turning it into a quality fire apparatus.
Here is the note we received from the Operations Division Chief at the department.
I just wanted to give you an update regarding our new ladder truck.
I’m sure you’re aware first responders have a pretty tough job. It makes it easier knowing people like you and companies like Brindlee Mountain Fire Apparatus are there to help us make that job easier.
Very rarely, if ever, are we called when people are having a good day. Rather we are usually called when people are having possibly the worst day of their lives. Such was the case the Friday after Thanksgiving, November 23. The Huerfano County Fire Dept was dispatched to a structure fire that afternoon.
The first due engine found the house completely engulfed in flames. Fortunately, the grandmother and her two grandchildren got out safely. Unfortunately, the house was a total loss.
Our new ladder truck, however, performed perfectly.
Although the house was a total loss we were able to successfully protect the two threatened houses immediately to either side of the burning house.
It’s been a long road since we started this project back in March. Thanks again for everything you did for us.
