Rural Fire Control welcomes new engine
space
There was a special Halloween treat for the Rural Fire Control staff Thursday, as a brand new fire engine rolled across town and into the station.

RFC chief Neal Wozniak, assistant chief Dave Koles, and fire board president Larry Noskowiak eagerly took possession of the truck from Kevin Pomasl of Pomasl Fire Equipment Thursday afternoon, with Wozniak doing the honors of driving the truck to its new home on Lincoln Street.

“We are happy to have such a nice piece of equipment to serve our area,” Wozniak said. He also mentioned the organization is proud to have bought the truck from a local outfitter.

The new engine bears the RFC logo and the enscription “Proudly serving the Townships of Rolling, Ackley, and Neva.” RFC has been fighting fires in those towns since 1977.

The new truck was ordered earlier this year to replace a 1986 fire engine. It was purchased with funds provided from all three towns.

“We are a department of 26 firemen, and we are excited to add this to our station,” Wozniak explained. “This truck provides the next level of technology to the community, with compressed air foam and other advances. Being able to respond with this new equipment ensures that we can provide a high level of firefighting technology.”

The new engine, lucky “No. 13,” can seat five firefighters, and is able to transport the men with air pack already on them en route to a fire scene, and carries all necessary equipment.

The RFC crew will now finish installing needed shelving and attachments this week. The engine will then be stocked and ready for service within the next few weeks.
