Last Friday, the crews at Station 9 welcomed their new rig; the new Pumper 9. Friends, family, crew members who visited from other stations and members of the community celebrated the new arrival. After Chaplain Farone performed the invocation, the attendees got a chance to spray some water on the new apparatus and, after drying it out, pushed it into the station for the first time. See below for some photos of the event.
This is the 2nd wetdown of the year, next week 18’s will host a wetdown on February 14 at 1600 for the new Rescue 23 and 7’s will host another one for the new Pumper 7 on February 15 at 1000. These events are open to the public, everyone is encouraged to attend and invite friends and family.
