Two rigs spent their last night in El Paso Tuesday as Central A-shift prepared old RL-1 and RP1 for donation to our brother firefighters in our sister city of Cd. Juarez. The dedication ceremony and handing over of the two 1993 Pierce apparatus took place Wednesday morning. Applying some TLC to the old rigs were Captain Armando Valencia, Lt. Fred Rosales, FST’s David Valenzuela and Rafael Dominguez and FF’s Joel Garcia, Michael Ortega, Miguel Gonzalez, Romualdo Carrillo, and Jordan Adams.
The next morning, during a joint city council session between El Paso and Juarez, an agreement was struck and the Juarez Fire Department came over to pick up their new rigs. We hope that these units help them out in their lifesaving mission across the border!
