Boulder firefighters oppose pickup fire truck

BOULDER — Boulder firefighters say a plan to use a converted pickup truck to respond to emergencies could hamper their ability to protect the public.

The fire chief says the truck is adequate and will save money, while union officials say it could delay response times.

The department plans to use a pickup truck equipped with sirens and lights to respond to medical calls as part of a two-year study.

According to the Boulder Daily Camera, the pickup truck cost $60,000 after a camper was added to hold medical equipment. A new ladder truck would cost about $1 million.
