On January 19 the City of Toledo, Oregon issued a 48 water conservation notice to the public. After three days of heavy rains and flooding, the city water treatment facility had become inundated with mud and debris from the storm drainage system. Fire Chief Will Ewing explained that the water supply had become so muddy that it could no longer be treated.
“I purchased an FW-60-P and created not only a fire truck but a potable water tank with a motor at a price below my purchasing guidelines. I would recommend that every fire chief in the country make this an integral part of their fire apparatus”
