A unique Rosenbauer aerial, commemorating the events of September 11, was recently delivered to Madison County (MS) Fire Services, according to a report published by the Madison County Journal.
According to the newspaper report, the $1.4 million Rosenbauer 101 King Cobra fire apparatus was featured at the Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis, IN, in August. It features a unique paint and lettering scheme featuring all the names of the Fire Department of New York (FDNY) firefighters killed in the attacks on the Twin Towers. FDNY firefighters helped design the truck, the newspaper reported.
The apparatus, which will be stationed in the Central Fire District in Canton, MS, was paid for in part with a $750,000 appropriation from the state, the newspaper reported, adding it will be used to help protect businesses and industries at the Madison County Megasite that will be home to a new Amazon distribution center.
