74 Rescue 1

After over 16 years of service in a town that grew quickly and squad that grew with the town, the original truck just did not fit the organizations size and equipment needs to effective protect the town. In the fall on 2004 a truck committee was presented with the task of designing a truck to fit what have currently grown into and beyond and allow room for growth. The squad contracted Rescue 1 out of Manasquan, NJ with the challenge of designing the vehicle that would not only fit our equipment, town growth, but also our building.
