Have you noticed the Hughesville Volunteer Fire Department Tanker roaming Mechanicsville quite frequently the past few months?
This unit is new to them and offers them a completely new unit type for them as they’ve had a “engine-tanker” for years in the past. Their members have been completing drivers training on the unit and have been driving it down many of the roads that it will respond to calls on. This in turn means it will travel to Mechanicsville for most structure Fire calls in Mechanicsville and other fire related emergencies.
We would like to take a minute and thank the Hughesville VFD Officers and Members for bringing the new “Tanker 2” to Station 2 for one of our weekly drills to explain the specs and capabilities of this unit to us.
We look forward to continuing to provide the best service to our communities along with our mutual aide partners.
