From the Boone County Sheriff’s office:

On Thursday, November 18th, 2020, at 11:00 am, the Boone County Sheriff’s Office unveiled its new Emergency Management Agency’s ir Truck. The purchase was made possible when all fire departments in Boone County partnered with the Sheriff’s Office to share with the costs. These fire departments include Boone County Fire District #1 (Capron), Boone County Fire District #2 (Southern Boone County), North Boone Fire District #3 and the Belvidere Fire Department. All fire departments donated $15,000.00 in money and/or equipment for the new truck. General Mills, located in Belvidere, also graciously donated $5,000.00 toward the project.

The EMA Air Truck, an E-One heavy rescue truck, was purchased used and will be used  primarily to fill firefighter’s air tanks at fire scenes and air tanks at water rescues. The truck is staffed by EMA volunteers and will be used not only in Boone County, but wherever it is needed throughout the region. This replaces an aged air truck that had to be retired.
