Forest Grove District Fire Crew Update

Fire crew comes on June 8th and June 15. 

Local training will be under way the week of June 8th and June 15. 

New fire crew members will be going to the mid-valley fire school the week of June 15. 

Meanwhile, the engines are ready, we are finishing building a new 500 gallon engine and a new 300 gallon engine that should both be ready July 1.

Also under development is a new tender named Sarge (or the New White Lightening to some of us). This is a conversion of the 2500 gallon tank from the old tender, White Lightening, onto the new Freightliner chassis obtained from the federal excess property program.
