Engine 52 Rehabilitation Under Way

On June 16, 2005 members from the Capitol Heights Volunteer Fire Department brought Engine 52 to Emergency Vehicle Specialists (EVS) in Hagerstown, Maryland for its rehabilitation.

The scope of work for this rehabilitation includes a new paint scheme (white over red) with all new lettering. Lettering will include a traditional maltese cross rather than the current company seal. The website address and a fire prevention message will also be part of the lettering scheme.

Other scope items include:

  • Repairs and upgrades to the cab interior.
  • New Sigtronics headsets / intercom system to improve firefighter health and safety.
  • All new LED warning lights to improve visibility.
  • Improved scene lighting making for a better night time work environment.
  • Installation of a Drive Cam.
  • Work is progressing on time. The vehicle has been stripped and is being prepared for painting.

We hope to have this work completed in time for the September 2005 Prince George’s County Volunteer Fire & Rescue Association convention, hosted by the Brandywine Volunteer Fire Department.

Stay tuned for progress photos and updates.
