Foam 403
By 2008, the base mission had changed and the fighter jets assigned were
relocated. The airfield was taken over by the USCG and the fire department
by the Massachusetts Military Reservation.
Unfortunately this meant that the newest crash apparatus was taken back
by the Air Force and reassigned to a more active base.
This truck went to Selfridge ANGB in Michigan.
 

 



Foam 404
2006 Oshkosh Stryker 1500 gallon crash truck was delivered in 2006.
Unfortunately, it too was reassigned in 2008 to another base.
