Patricia Wood and Kasey Puppe doing the dirty work
Jon Higley removing some old decals
Zac Hopkins rubbing out the paint job; returning the bright red color
Both sides of the Fire/Rescue truck had folks taking turns at removing old decals in preparation for some bright new ones. It’s a tricky, time-consuming process; getting them off without damage to the underlying paint. The new look will be worth it.
