Nelson County, VA
In just under four years Wintergreen Fire Department has done the unthinkable. They have paid off their new $760,000 ladder truck just short of 4 years. During a brief ceremony, where NCL Publisher Tommy Stafford was emcee, WFD Chief Curtis Sheets torched the note after passing off the final $50,000 payment to Nelson BOS of Connie Brennan. Nelson County loaned the department a portion of money toward the purchase of the new fire truck. “This truck allows two major things which we couldn’t do before. First, we can get to steep roof pitches to ventilate fires and/or check for extensions. Second, we can quickly set the truck and use the remote controlled nozzle to lob water on a fire from the platform 100′ above us. With our limited manpower, this is huge,” said WFD Chief Sheets
Congrats WFD and thanks for a fantastic afternoon!
