VIDEO: The Mobile Fire-Rescue Department (MFRD) showed off some brand new vehicles today. Four firetrucks and three ambulances joined the MFRD’s fleet along with two special additions... a hydration truck and training trailer. The hydration unit is a response to high temperatures. “It is a rehabilitation unit for firefighters. Essentially what that provides is an area for them to cool off and rehabilitate after being in their bunker gear at the fire scene, especially in Mobile, Alabama where the heat is a hundred-plus degrees during the summer time,” said Jeremy Lami, Fire Chief of the MFRD. The training truck will be taken to schools, nursing homes, and other facilities, providing instruction that mimics real-life situations.
