The Mun­son Fire Depart­ment now has a new ve­hi­cle in its fleet, thanks to a do­na­tion from Spe­cial­ized De­sanders.

The depart­ment took de­liv­ery of a 2012 Dodge Ram 3500 crew cab from the oil­field com­pany, which has an of­fice in Three Hills. It was a for­mer Spe­cial­ized De­sanders fleet ve­hi­cle.

Mun­son Fire Chief, Steve Wannstrom, ex­plains that while the com­pany op­er­ates out of Three Hills, it op­er­ates and has em­ploy­ees in Star­land County.

“We ap­plied two years ago, and then they ended the pro­gram,” he said. “When the project started back up (Spe­cial­ized De­sanders em­ployee) Dan Trem­blay pushed for us to get one.” He is grate­ful for the do­na­tion. “Even with the econ­omy, with oil and gas down, they are still will­ing to do­nate, which is awe­some,” said Wannstrom. Wannstrom ex­plains the truck is ver­sa­tile. “It can be of mixed use, we can use it for a com­mand ve­hi­cle, plus in the spring it can be out­fit­ted for brush fires and grass fires,” he said.

Be­fore the truck is put into ser­vice, Wannstrom says they will be paint­ing or wrap­ping the truck, and then in­stalling equip­ment, which could in­clude a tank and an ultra high­pres­sure sys­tem. The depart­ment has funds in its ac­count it has raised that can be used to out­fit the truck. The Mun­son Fire Depart­ment has a new truck, thanks to a do­na­tion from Spe­cial­ized De­sanders. At the pre­sen­ta­tion are (l-r) fire­fight­ers Dan Lawrence, Darcy Lan­don Jr., Kevin Bur­field, Jeff Sharpe, Brett Ad-

ams, Steve Wannstrom and Mike Bur­field of the Mun­son Depart­ment with Dan Trem­blay of Spe­cial­ized De­sanders Inc.
