Rob Zielinski and I had a virtual tour of the new Hornby Island Fire Rescue tender. It is almost complete and is on track to be delivered in a week or two. We did a video conference with the folks at Fort Garry Fire Trucks at their factory in Winnipeg where they wandered around the truck with an iPhone showing us some of the features.
They will be sending a driver/trainer to drive the rig to Hornby Island and spend a day training us on its components. We’ll start using it in our training sessions before the end of September in the hopes of challenging the Superior Tanker Shuttle Accreditation test in the spring.
