9/11 Memorial Ruck
Hill AFB Fire and Emergency Services, Kaysville FD/PD and Layton FD/PD are teaming up to honor the 412 first responders who gave their lives to protect and serve on September 11, 2001.
On that grievous day terrorists threatened the United States of America and our way of life. Vowing to protect our freedoms, American soldiers have fought against tyranny and oppression in multiple conflicts across several different nations. Since Operation Iraqi Freedom began in 2002 6,967 Military members have been killed as a result of these wars.
The opening ceremony for this ruck will be at 8:20 AM at the USU Botanical Gardens (920 South 50 West, Kaysville).
During the 9.6 mile ruck there will be 3 stopping points with hydration stations and medical treatment on standby. FD bunker gear or 30 lb. ruck is encouraged.
We look forward to having you join us this year for our 4th Annual 9-11 Memorial Ruck.
New Rescue Engine
Recently Chief Erickson, Captain Shupe and Engineer McKinnon traveled to Appleton, Wisconsin to Pierce Manufacturing to review the pre-construction planning on our new Rescue Engine.
The new rescue engine will meet two needs that our current heavy rescue does not meet: compartment space to store equipment and the ability to fight fires. The new rescue engine will function as both a rescue and an engine, meaning we can tackle any emergency with it from an auto extrication to a house fire.
We are excited about this build and how it will serve our community for the next 20 years! We plan to take delivery of it in Summer of 2019.
