E-32 Week 3, SQ-3 Progress Report Week 8 for 10/31/14

Committee Chairmen Steve Stockwell, November 03

In the photos below you can see the progression of E-32 and SQ-3. It does appear the department committee members will be out at Pierce, nearly the same time to complete final inspections of both. This is due to Engines essentially being smaller and 3 workshifts at the main plant as opposed to the 2 shifts at the Truck/Heavy Rescue/ARFF facility.

E-32's progression has been the completion of the ... (Full Story & Photos)

It had hardly gotten dark when ... (Full Story & Photos)

Mr. Fairfax told me we did over 27 activities ... (Full Story & Photos)
