Good Evening Chris,

 Just a short note to tell you I had the opportunity this afternoon to respond to a structure fire on Chemo Pond in Clifton with our new E-One pumper/tanker. This is the first fire that the crew has actually allowed me to operate this truck!  In short, what a fantastic experience. The truck drove like a dream and pump operations couldn’t have been any more simple. This E-One truck has surpassed our expectations. Much of the success of this project has been your commitment to work with our department and with E-One to design a truck that matched our needs.  You were an advocate for us throughout the entire process. The quality of the truck built by E-One is outstanding. We get complements from other fire departments every time we respond to an incident or participate in a static display event.

I just wanted to pass along my appreciation for all of your hard work. Today the truck operated flawlessly and for someone who has operated some pretty sketchy apparatus over the years, was an absolute pleasure to operate.

Have a great holiday weekend.
