In 2011, the Mendham Fire Department accepted the delivery of a new incident command (IC) vehicle. As with its predecessor; this new Chevrolet Tahoe was purchased with funds donated to the Fire Department and comes equipped with a full complement of radios, lights and other “technical” firefighting equipment.
Unlike other types of fire apparatus, the IC vehicle is strictly a support unit. It provides the department with a quick responsible unit—allowing an officer to respond quickly to a call and begin incident assessment or size up as other members and equipment are responding. It also creates a centralized location at emergency scenes where officers and other leaders can gather to properly attack any situation. Finally, it is caries with it a full complement of radios, providing incident commanders with an easy way to communicate with our mutual-aid departments when responding and while on scene.
Thank You again for your continued support!
