Tom and Thad Frederick of T. Frederick Motor Repair in Angola Indiana donated time and materials in getting our cascade air bottle filling system wired in the fire station. Ashley Fire Rescue donated their previously used Cascade system to Hudson Fire Rescue a few years back, but when we were ready to install it we found the old fire station does not have the proper electricity to run the compressor as it requires a 3-Phase hookup.
Tom and Thad were able to re-wire the compressor with the proper conversions to our stations electricity to allow the installation of the air compressor. Over $1000 of time and material were donated to make this possible. Hudson Fire would like to recognize and thank them for their support in assisting with this project.
There are a few things left to do with the fresh air intake the fire department is finishing up so we can put this in service. This will allow our department to fill our own air bottles.
