The DeKalb County Fire Department expresses it sincere appreciation to the DeKalb County High School's General Metals Class for modifying the water tanks on the Blue Springs, Belk, and Temperance Hall fire trucks.
The modification was needed to allow more efficient water shuttle operations by the fire department. Each tank modification took about a week and, with the cooperation of Mr. Todd Cantrell and the DCHS General Metals Class, the department saved about $5,000 in expenses that would have had to been paid out the county fire department's budget.
The DeKalb County Fire Department provided a pizza lunch for the class on May 5 as a token of the department's appreciation. Picture above is the DCHS General Metals Class.
