Beacon Hose christened Truck 6 — the department’s new, 2017 Pierce Ascendant quint with a 107-foot ladder — at a wetdown ceremony June 24.
Our friends from the Middlebury Volunteer Fire Dept. and Oxford Center Co. No. 1 joined us for the traditional wetting down of the truck. Chief Brian DeGeorge and engineer Paul Brennan also sprayed the apparatus with champagne, and department chaplain Fr. Mathai Vellappallil delivered a wonderful blessing for the truck. The truck is now in service and continues to be populated with new equipment.
Truck 6 T-shirts will be on sale until July 23. Shirts are navy blue with our department’s logo on the chest and artwork featuring Truck 6 on the back. Men’s sizes small-XL ($20.95) and 2XL-5XL ($25.95) are available online. Any shirt sizes on backorder will be filled when the order closes and should be available by the beginning of August.
