Last Saturday, the crews at Station 23 welcomed their new unit; the new Rescue 23. Friends, family, crew members who visited from other stations and members of the community celebrated the new arrival. The attendees got a chance to spray some water on the new ambulance and, after drying it out, pushed it into the station for the first time.
This is the 3rd wetdown of the year. Next week, a wetdown for Rescue 18 will be held on February 14 at 4:00 PM at Station 18 (7901 San Jose Rd) and another one for Pumper 7 will be held on February 15 at 10:00 AM at Station 7 (3200 Pershing Dr.).
These events are open to the public!
Special thanks to the El Paso Firefighters Pipes & Drums Band and the Honor Guard for always supporting us during the events. These events would not shine as they do without you, guys!
