Riverdale GA Christens New Quint Truck

Riverdale Fire Services (GA) recently held a christening ceremony for a new quint fire truck.

“We are pleased for a number of reasons,” said Riverdale Public Safety Director Samuel Patterson. “The number one reason we acquired it is for the safety and security of the citizens of Riverdale. We now have the ability to fight fires in high rises and large commercial fires.”

Patterson said “quick responsiveness” was another reason for purchasing the $500,000 fire truck. The public safety director said the city will no longer have to wait for other fire departments to assist them when they have more than a one-alarm fire.

“The quint will help us with our ISO rating, which reduces liability from an insurance perspective for our citizens,” Patterson said. “Lower ISO ratings help residents get a lower rate for their homeowner’s insurance.”
