North Maine FPD Pierce engine

Chief Fox offered the following notes on the work:

The rig will be in the paint shop next week.  After that, three and a half to four weeks before we get it back.  Ladder rack is a single arm instead of a double.  The 5 inch re-piping is all done.  The rear lights will be modified and lowered.  Many of the doors are already in the paint shop getting primed.  There will be monster gauges on three sides of the vehicle.  The wireless Firecomm system is ordered.  The artist is coming along on the lettering.
