Truck Replacement

We have spent countless hours thinking of the future of the department with plans reaching far into the future, as far as 2068 in fact. This is how we plan to keep our trucks reliable, renewed, and ready to assist you! Please direct any questions or concerns regarding the truck replacement plan to our contact page. Please remember that as Covid-19 progresses we will be reviewing our plans and changing them to reflect the current situations.
