LITTLE BIG GUYS
By John M. Malecky April, 2021
Last month I featured Brush 1 of the Berlin Borough Fire Department. This month I am featuring Utility 21-1 of the same department. I try to alternate a truck with a pump and then a truck without a pump. This month I am focusing on a 1995 Ford F-350 XL 4x4 with a Reading body. It is a Fire Police vehicle that has a gasoline engine and a five-seat cab. Its inventory consists of gas keys, safety cones, horses to block off streets, cribbing, a dewatering pump, pigs to corral spills, a shovel, tarp, flares and chainsaws.
