Guam - The Guam Fire Department has a new Single Pierce Arrow Pumper/Ladder Fire Unit thanks to the Forestry Division of the Department of Agriculture. According to GFD Acting Fire Chief Joey San Nicolas, the additional unit will greatly help his department in doing their job.
"The significance to this is that we have enough apparatuses available to put a unit in Talofofo, which hasn't had a unit for a couple of months. This is just another extension of our ability to continue to save lives and protect property," he said.
San Nicolas is hopeful that donations like today are a turning point for his department. He adds that the island currently has seven running ambulances.
