FDMJ Orders New Truck - Mount Joy Borough  
Date: Mon, Jun 27, 2016 11:33
Address: FDMJ
Details:

At a special meeting on June 16, 2016 the members of FDMJ voted to replace Truck 75 with a Seagrave 95' Aerialscope.  Members of FDMJ have been meeting to discuss the needs and specifications of the replacement Truck for over two years.  Over 10 manufacturers brought demonstration units or provided specifications for the members and officers to review.  The Truck Committee then reviewed proposals from three manufacturers to determine which vehicle would best meet the department's and community's needs.

Committee members will soon be meeting with Seagrave for the engineering meeting to finalize the specifications so construction can begin.  Delivery of the new Truck is expected to be in July of 2017.

The Officers and Members of FDMJ would like to thank the Communities and Municipalities that we serve for their continuous support to make projects like this possible.
