The Witmer Fire Protective Association general membership gave the new squad committee the go ahead to order the vehicle that was recommended by the group, this particular vehicle is a 2016 Dodge Ram 3500 with a full crew cab and 8 foot bed and 5.7 Liter V8 Hemi VVT Engine. This decision was made after the members reviewed a 2016 Chevy Silverado 3500, 2016 Ford F-350, and the 2016 Dodge Ram 3500, it was clear to the members after reviewing the vehicles side… by side that the Dodge vehicle appears to be the best suited vehicle for the company due to cab size, maneuverability, bed size and other features. Once the vehicle is ordered you can expect the vehicle to arrive at a minimum of 12 weeks from the order date and then the process of mounting toolboxes, installing lights, vehicle lettering, and mounting tools will begin before the new Squad 62-1 will be placed into service!
