Rescue 6 Sold to Fairfields Volunteer Fire Department

Monday, April 13, 2020
As part of our long-range plan to improve overall service to our community, the Chestertown VFC has made a rather large change. The decision was made to sell Rescue 6, our rescue truck, and eventually replace it with a Rescue-Engine. There is an apparatus committee currently working on the specifications for the new unit. One of the biggest features carried on Rescue 6 is a Cascade System, which allows the refill of breathing air cylinders at the scene of an emergency. This feature will be temporarily unavailable until the replacement unit is delivered. Until then we will work with our mutual aid companies as needed to continue that important task. Additionally, critical tools carried on Rescue 6, needed to fulfill our mission, have been relocated to units we still have in service.
