Rescue 18 Wetdown

Last Friday, the El Paso Fire Department celebrated the arrival of the new Rescue 18.

Crewmembers, family, friends, and neighbors attended the ceremony where the new unit was sprayed down by the community and pushed into the station. A tradition that dates back from the 1800s.

A few minutes after the ceremony, the crews got their first call and went out in the new unit. Rescue 18 is officially now in service protecting our community!
