The Gaithersburg Washington Grove Volunteer Fire Department is very happy to announce that Canteen 708 (CT708) has been delivered, passed all inspections, and has been placed in service. It is a 2019 Freightliner EVI from FESCO on a M2 chassis. It took a while to design and build the unit, but we are thrilled to be able to put it in service and provide critical support to the fire ground and any other long term incident. The unit was designed to support large scale incidences, holding dozen’s of cases of cold water and Gatorade and snacks. The unit also has dual canopies that can provide cover from the rain or sun during rehab. It also has a hand washing station, allowing fire fighters to get dangerous soot off their hands.
