2009.07.08 Ed and Vi LaNew: Aerial truck

Posted in Letters

We support the Morenci Fire Department in their quest of purchasing the used aerial truck from the Archbold Fire Department.

We have seen it in use as our fire department trained and were impressed as to what this equipment could do. It would be a major protection for our community at a bargain price.

Although it may not be used very often, we’re sure that for the business or the residence or a life that could potentially be saved, it would be often enough. Even though other aerial trucks are potentially available through mutual aid, time and availability would be a concern; and is that an attitude we can afford to have, basing our protection on another department several miles away?

$15,000 is a good investment, a small price to pay for a world of protection.
