SVFD’s NEW COMMAND & RESCUE VEHICLE
Belcarra’s emergency services “corner stone” is the Sasamat Volunteer Fire Department (SVFD) that has provided an outstanding level of service since its inception in 1978. The SVFD is debt-free, and as taxpayers we have been benefiting from a long-standing policy of acquiring equipment and vehicles on a pay-as-you-go basis. This January, the SVFD placed into service its newest piece of equipment: a state-of-the-art “Command & Rescue” vehicle at a cost of $300,000 that was fully funded from SVFD’s Equipment Replacement Reserve.
The new “Command & Rescue” vehicle will fulfill three primary roles:
For the technical aficionados among us, the specifications and special features of the new “Command & Rescue” vehicle are as follows (see photo below):
The new “Command & Rescue” vehicle is a significant advancement for the SVFD, and will enable a better level of response for medical emergencies, car accidents, fires of all types, and other significant incidents. With help from outside our community slow to arrive due to distance and other factors, it is essential that we be able to respond both quickly and comprehensively. Our volunteer firefighters are dedicated and well trained, and we can be proud to say they are also well equipped for the difficult tasks that face them.
