Truck #4609 Trailer Project Update

March 9, 2014

There has not been an update on this project for a while 

because Chief Engineer Rick Traut acquired a new trailer 

from government surplus through 

The New Jersey Office of Emergency Management. 

However, the new trailer is now in our building and the 

pump and the tank, along with the hose reels 

have been lowered onto it. 

This project is led by Chief Engineer (Deputy Chief) Rick Traut 

and would not be possible without help from 

Firefighter Josh Traut, Assistant Chief Todd MacLennan, 

Foreman Frank Ascolillo, Trustee Doug White, 

and Junior Firefighter Steven Comis. 

This trailer will be used when we experience high 

flood waters and will be towed by Truck #4609.
