One department was expected to take delivery of a rig but because of the wildfires raging in California, no one was available to pick up the rig.
According to customer representatives, it takes an average of 1,800 hours to complete a large fire apparatus, but during wildfire season, the company can’t deliver the rigs fast enough.
