Earlier today, Media Fire Hook and Ladder #1 - Station 23 traveled over with their new engine to lend a helping hand to Bethel Twp. Hose Co.#1, as they are in the engine build process and wanted a look at the new Pierce line.
Both companies were more than happy to help out as we also got a chance to snag a few shots of the twins, side by side!
We would also like to congratulate Media Fire Hook and Ladder #1 - Station 23 on an awesome build and delivery of their new engine. ... See MoreSee Less
