Jackson Hole Fire/EMS is seeing some equipment upgrades with two fire engines already delivered and three more anticipated in the months ahead. Fire Chief Willy Watsabaugh says the two that have been received aretwo of three brush trucks that were ordered – one of which replaces the one destroyed over a year ago during the Horsethief Canyon wildfire. He says the engines are built on federal excess apparatus that are retrofitted specifically to do wildland firefighting. He says not only are the vehicles newer, but they have been reconfigured a little differently from the ones they replaced to accommodate some newer technology. Watsabaugh says funds raised by the public to replace the one destroyed in the fire were used to outfit the trucks. A third wildland truck is yet to be received. Meanwhile, two structural trucks have been ordered from Ferrara Fire Apparatus Company from Holden Louisiana. Watsabaugh says they will replace two of the oldest engines in the department – one at the Hoback fire station and the other at the Adams Canyon station. Both are pumpers capable of delivering about 1000 gallons per minute, carrying six firefighters, and a variety of equipment that the firefighters would need for initial attack on a structure fire. At the same time, Watsabaugh says a new ambulance is to be delivered in early 2014 as well.
