Central Emergency Services (CES) fire fighters know how to respond to emergency situations with incredible flexibility and resourcefulness. Thanks to a $4.4 million bond measure approved by voters in 2016, the CES fleet of fire trucks and ambulances now have new specially designed equipment to respond even quicker.
CES Chief Roy Browning introduced the new apparatus to the community May 5, during a dedication ceremony, pancake breakfast, and open house at the CES station in Soldotna.
“One of the things we wanted to do, when we had the chance with the bond measure approved, was to sit back, evaluate our mission and look at the apparatus in our ambulance design and our fire trucks to maximize the funding we had available, so we could take one truck and replace two trucks with it,” said Chief Browning in an interview with the Dispatch. “We’ve done that here.”
