The new CFR 3 will replace a 2000 Oshkosh TI-1500, 1500/210/450#. That truck was one of three white 2000 Oshkosh TI crash trucks delivered that year, a TI-3000 and two TI-1500s. CFR 4 was replaced last year with the 2016 Striker and subsequently sold.

Site work is underway. Recent work included a sand filter installed in November, under where the parking lot will be located. Will help with storm water run-off. Work was delayed for a number of weeks, after the excavation of two underground fuel tanks, and the resulting soil testing. See more photos on Mike’s new SmugMug site.
