Dear FireRescue1 Member,

In this month's eNews, Sarah Calams gives us a detailed look inside Miami-Dade Fire Rescue's one-of-a-kind Heavy-1 rescue truck, and Robert Avsec outlines a four-step process for determining whether an initial-attack apparatus or quick response vehicle (QRV) is the best fit for your agency. Also, Chief Billy Goldfeder explains what firefighters can do when they witness unsafe apparatus driving practices.
