Mt. Morris Fire houses new Rescue Squad Co. 5747
Mt. Morris Fire recently placed a new to them Rescue Squad into service. The 2000 HME M&W Rescue Squad was purchased from the Bedford, Virginia, Fire Department. The Squad was readied for service by the Volunteers at the Firehouse. On Thursday, May 21, 2015 Fire District Chaplain Josh Ehrler performed a service to bless the Squad into service. Following Fire Service Tradition, the members of the Fire District pushed the Squad into the Firehouse. This Squad is replacing a 1982 E-One that was purchased from Byron, Illinois, Fire District in the fall of 2003. You probably have seen the Squad out and about as firefighters train on driving and operating the vehicle. Look back soon for additional pictures.
