Chancellor Fire Department purchased Polaris side-by-side

According to Chancellor Volunteer Fire Department Fire Chief Jeb Ford, the department used donated funds from previous years to purchase a Ranger XP to help the department during grass fires. He said the department placed a CAFS system that provides compressed air foam streams consisting of water, foam and compressed air. The water extinguishes fire and the air and foam concentrate ensure that the water delivery rate is more effective in stopping a fire. He said their goal is to strap a backboard on the back to transport victims in grass fire situations. Photo/Dawn Rye
