District 6: Firetruck Set to Arrive

Early in February, Chief Adrian Batchelor and Captain Toni Rodgers traveled to Brandon, South Dakota to perform a post construction inspection of Bienville Fire District 6’s latest acquisition; a 3,000-gallon pumper/tanker. The new firetruck was built by Spartan Emergency Response and sold by Delta Fire & Safety in Eunice, Louisiana. The new firetruck is currently in Eunice, LA, where installers are fitting the new radios and other features which were not installed at the manufacturing plant. The new firetruck will be housed at the Castor fire station, the highest responding station in District 6, and the next newest firetruck in the fleet will be rotated out to the next highest responding station.
We appreciate the hospitality and dedication to detail shown by everyone at Spartan and Delta Fire and Safety. Chief Batchelor expects to take delivery of the new firetruck sometime this month.
