Since the Flugtag is being held in Prince George's county Md. This would be a great way for our fire dept. community to be a part of the competition Instead of just providing fire and EMS services.
Besides, everyone loves firefighters, even little kittens stuck in a tree.
What a better way to show off fire department pride than designing your flying craft to look like your new fleet of fire apparatus, then push it off the platform into flugtag history. Our department just bought 2 ladder trucks, 5 fire trucks (our design) and a new fleet of chief buggies.
This was a big step for our department towards safe apparatus for our firefighters. Company pride is a big part of the brotherhood that we stand for. Driving a new fire truck into the water and not having to pay for the damages.......what firefighter wouldn't want to do that?
