Hey Justin,
Well, I have been back home in Austrailia for about 2 months now. I loved living in Kennett Square for the year (Augusut 2006-August 2007) as an Au Pair (Nanny). It was a fantastic experience and one I will always remember.
A very treasured memory was meeting you and getting to know you. I want to thank you so much for showing me the firehouse and fire trucks and what you do everyday when you put your life on the line to save peoples lives by firefighting. I truly respect you and everything you do. You and all your guys there at Kennett Fire Company No. 1 are top blokes. Keep up the good work guys. Luv Danni H

Dave, one of your firefighters, signed our guestbook so I'm finally getting around to returning the favor by visiting your website and find it to be very nice. I also notice that you have the exact same 1860 Cowing hand drawn engine as we do. It took a bit of time to restore ours but the work and the wait was well worth it. I don't think there are any others like it around as most departments have left their antique engines to rot away. Keep up the great work on the site and be safe.

Dear Sirs:

In my fire company in Chile we are needing to replace our aerial, and Rosenbauer is one of the proponents.

I saw your Metz Aerial, could it be compared with any other of american design about its capacities?.

For example, could it reach a 4th floor from 80 ft?, something usual when there is obstacles between the building and the apparatus such as vehicles or any other kind of obstruction.

Could it flow a real master stream (1.000, 1.250 gpm) and direct it to the sides.

Thanks before hand and best regards

It is with great sorrow that I read of Tillers passing, it was only a few months ago when I last gave him one of his burgers that he so loved. I can recall taking him on Fire Prevention activities along with Flashy (when he was a pup he hated that thing) can recall the name contest from the kids on open house, to name the pup,
rest in peace lil pup, go sit by Sax's chair be safe

Hi I'm Tom Quinn's Daughter Inlaw and I have been told you have a unimog in the station. Good to see! I drive the unimogs for the Australian Army and so does my partner (tom's Step son) Mark Oswald.
Looks good if only our fireys in Defence would use the same but in 6 wheel drive. Just winging it but does it have 8 gears and a forward reverse lever? If so and you haven't tried it..... Those babies can do 80km (sorry 40miles) plus in reverse although its a little dificult in the steering deparment.
Anyway I wish you all the best with your truck!
