Decatur Fire Department news

From Decatur Fire Department Facebook:

Old Boston Rescue 1 up and running for the DFD. It carries Technical Rescue/Haz-Mat and SCUBA equipment. Our firefighters did a great job cleaning it and installing the lettering and graphics. Total investment was less than $50,000. Should serve Decatur for the next 10 years.
