A Wisconsin fire truck needed to be rescued by a tow truck Tuesday after a sinkhole opened under the rig.

From JournalTimes.com:

Matt Bodenbach, the [Racine] firefighter who was driving the truck when the ground gave way, said it felt like a pothole at first. Then the rig started to lean and that was when he got out and saw it was more than a pothole.

A tow truck was able to pull the fire truck out about an hour later, JournalTimes.com reported.

Battalion Chief Paul Madden told the JournalTimes.com the rig had “minimal” damage.

A ladder truck in Missouri was damaged Saturday afternoon after a collision with a car.

The Columbia Fire Department rig was returning from a call, according to ColumbiaMissiourian.com.

From ColumbiaMissourian.com:

The truck was traveling west on Hinkson Avenue when it came to a four-way stop at the intersection of North William Street. As the truck was turning left into the intersection, a silver Volkswagen Jetta, which was heading north, struck it on the side.

It was unclear whether the Jetta stopped at the stop sign, said Patrol Officer Dan Wright, who is investigating the crash.

The three firefighters were all wearing seatbelts and not injured, ColumbiaMissourian.com reported.

Division Chief Jerry Jenkins told ColumbiaMissourian.com the truck had “significant damage” to its side and a reserve truck will be used until it is repaired.

VIDEO: New Indiana fire truck dedicated to fallen firefighter

Published on: April 12th, 2014

An Indiana department dedicated its new Pierce tanker to a firefighter who died in a 2012 crash.

From IndianasNewsCenter.com:

It was 17 months ago when [Mark Haudenschild II] was killed in a rollover accident while on his way to put out a fire. Not only was Haudenschild lost, but so was the tanker he was driving.

Through an outpouring of honor and support, the Washington Township Fire Department dedicated their new tanker in the fallen firefighter’s memory.

Not only did they dedicate the truck by naming it in Mark Haudenschild II’s honor, but they also gave it the same number.

From WANE.com:

The fire department’s tanker holds 3,000 gallons of water, and gives the department two tankers once again. Gillett said the tanker was replaced through the department’s insurance policy, which would replace the old one at no financial cost to the department.

The new tanker includes a back-up camera, LED lights, and a computerized water pump.

The new rig was delivered to the station in February, and firefighters have spent the last couple of months training on it, Washington Township Fire Chief Brian Gillett told WANE.

Old Texas truck finds new home in museum

It started life in 1943 serving the military, then helped fight fires to various departments around Texas before being sold privately. Now, this Chevorlet has found a home in a museum.

In 1946, one man donated $1,500 so the Round Rock Fire Department could buy the rig and his son is one of the people who helped get the truck restored after it was discovered in an old barn two years ago, Statesman.com‘s Jennifer Wisian reported.

From Statesman.com:

By piecing together various accounts and records, [Fraternal Order of the Round Rock Volunteer Fire Department president Ed] Girvan was able to explain where the engine went after the Round Rock Fire Department retired it from service in 1975.

“In 1975, the engine went to serve as the first fire apparatus for the Jollyville Volunteer Fire Department, which had formed that year,” he said. “In 1980, it went to serve for the Sam Bass Volunteer Fire Company for a few years. In the mid-80s, it was sold to the private sector and lost after further sales.

“Two years ago, we found it in a barn. With the help of Sam Bass Fire Chief David Kieschnick, we brought it to Robert Behrens who, with the help of a group of people, helped restore it.”

Last weekend, Round Rock Fire Engine No. 2 was welcomed into the Firehouse Museum at Old Settlers Park.

Firefighters and police officers flexed their muscles to pull about 50,000 pounds worth of fire truck, all to help colleagues who have battled cancer.

The Cops 4 the Cure event in Charlotte on Sunday consisted of 25 teams of 8 people each, CharlotteObserver.com reported.

This is the third year teams have pulled the “Pink Lady” fire truck to raise money for Cops 4 the Cure, according to the CharlotteObserver.com.

“The survivors all get up together and pull together, and pull that truck. It’s very symbolic of survivorship and heroism, and being strong and surviving,” [Charlotte-Mecklenberg Police Captain Michelle] Hummel told WSOCTV.com.

Canadian fire truck may be donated to South America

An older Canadian fire truck may find a new home in South America, thanks to a donation.

Instead of auctioning the rig in Canada for around $2,000, officials in Clive have approved the truck to be given to a Bolivian community, according to LacombeGlobe.com.

From LacombeGlobe.com:

“There is really no market in North America for them, so they often just wind up in scrap heaps or used for parts for farm trucks,” said [fire chief Ed] van Delden.

“I’m a triple bottom line kind of guy and I see the environmental benefits of repurposing and the social value, getting the most value (out of the truck).

“This truck is probably a very good candidate in being in good shape, but it started when we looked at replacing city engine one, but (the Clive) one came up and we thought, ‘why not this one?’”

“I think everyone agrees that, from a humanitarian perspective, Bolivia is a good place for it to go. It will go to a city or a community that will have zero fire trucks and no fire protection.”

There are still logistical hurdles to get over before the fire truck can be sent, but once everything is in place, van Delden told LacombeGlobe.com he would like to send some firefighters down to help train on the rig.
