Weisenberg Volunteer Fire Dept. Places Duty Officer Vehicle 5199 Into Service
Unit 5199 has recently been placed into service. The unit will act as a Duty Officer / Quick Response / Incident Command Vehicle and will be shared between the 6 Operational Fire Officers (Chief, Deputy Chief, Asst. Chief, Captain & 2 Lieutenants). The unit features Lehigh and Berks County Communication Equipment, Emergency Incident Command Equipment, Medical Equipment, Basic Spill Control & Fire Suppression Equipment. In addition to the increased benefit of having this equipment readily available to quickly respond to incidents it also decreases the burden placed on the fire officers who historically have used their own personal vehicles on emergency scenes.
