News Release, Bill Smith, Charles County Volunteers Fire and EMS PIO

The Potomac Heights Volunteer Fire Department is excited to announce the delivery of our brand new Seagrave Attacker HD Heavy Rescue Squad. The construction of this unit has been a project that our department has been working on for over two years now.

A lot of time an effort was put into the design and layout of this unit by our Rescue Squad Replacement Committee. We are very pleased with the product that Seagrave Fire Apparatus custom built for us and we are looking forward to operating it for many years to come. Our sales representative Tim Massey and Seagrave’s Director of National Sales Dennis Warren were excellent to work with and provided top notch customer service.

We would also like to thank Phillip Garappolo of Fitch Graphics and Design for lettering and striping the unit upon its delivery. A lot of works is still to be done to this unit before it is placed in service. We will keep you updated on its progress as we mount equipment and train members on its capabilities.

This vehicle will replace the 1997 Peterbuilt/Saulsbury Rescue Squad pictured on the left, Congratulations Potomac Heights Volunteers
