Daylight pics to come….But we hear from those observers on the scene it’s an “Antique”…and it was quite a production to get it under the canopy!…

LBTS…. a little seaside village of 2 &1/2 miles…with approximately 4 fires a year now has 5 firetrucks!…According to ISO a town this size needs 2 and having a reserve is a plus!…

So we now have 2 trucks in the firehouse bays…this 100 ft. ladder truck (finally) under the canopy…(until it goes in for “works” in detailing…new #s etc…) and the other 2 engines previously stored under the canopy and the ATVs are now not covered……(wasn’t that a requirement from ISO? Deputy Chief?)…

Word going around…McIntee and Colon will now put forward the URGENT need to build a NEW fire garage next to the hotel where the Development trailer is!…So much for saving money by getting rid of BSO!….

Questions flying around fast and furious…Who purchased the truck?…Who made the deal?…Who checked it out?…(The Deputy Chief?)….AND WILL THE TOWN MANAGER INSIST THE TOWN PURCHASE IT FROM THE VFD?…(sometimes she does and sometimes she doesn’t)….

BC- It really leaves a bad taste in many taxpayers mouths…witnessing the “piling on” of VFD apparatus purchases..and the lame responses from the Town Manager that the VFD is a contracted non-profit private corporation…(Hands off!…No oversight!)….UGHHHHHH…..

More to come….
