VIDEO: Three large Chevy 250 flatbed trucks will be used in tandem alongside the larger fire engines on rescue calls, but these will be able to get to places the larger vehicles couldn’t. It’s training day for the crews over at Lenoir Fire Station One. “It’s all right here on the center console,” An instructor said as the crews looked on. “Wanna see it four-high?” The instructor asked. The trucks are called the QRVs, or quick response vehicles. They’re another tool in the arsenal to be able to get to those in need quicker. These firefighters, some with decades under their belts, are getting something they’ve never used before. “That’s what one thing is increasing is the medical calls because as populations are getting older, we need to get something to get to them a little more quicker,” said Lenoir Fire Chief Ken Hair.
