Pumper 18 has recently joined the feet. To celebrate the occasion, the EPFD has adopted an old tradition called the “wet-down”. This tradition comes from centuries back, where firefighters coming back from a call would wash their trucks and then push them back into the station.
Members of the community attended the ceremony, and together with 18’s crews, welcomed the new Pumper into the fleet. This is the second wet-down that the El Paso Fire Department has done and it will certainly not be the last.
Welcome Pumper 18 !!
