Fire Equipment Delivered

Some much needed hand me downs make their way to the UP…

Fire departments in Michigan’s western Upper Peninsula are benefiting from a surplus of equipment delivered hundreds of miles from the Lower Peninsula. The Iron Mountain Daily News reports that more than a dozen people unloaded trucks and trailers last week in Iron Mountain. There were air packs, extraction tools, chain saws and other equipment. It’s considered essential stuff, but it’s also very expensive for small departments to acquire.
