First Division 27 department is posted

Beecher Fire Protection District engine deca;

Our first post in Division 27 is the Beecher Fire Protection District. They operate with 42 part-time firefighters out of one station and are responsible for a coverage area of 56 square miles! They operate two ambulances, one engine, one pumper/tanker, a quint with a 75′ aluminum ladder and a brush rig. Their suppression equipment is Pierce and their ambulances are Medtec and Road Resue.  In 2009 they replaced engine 406 and tanker 410 with a Pierce Arrow XT 2500-gallon pumper tanker.

Beecher  has interesting decals on each of the suppression rigs that are customized per piece.
