ARGOS, Ind. - The volunteer group of firefighters, Argos Firemen’s Inc., which serves the Argos community, recently purchased a 2000 F250 Super Duty Truck.

The truck was cleaned up with new decals added and was donated to the Argos Fire Territory for their transportation fleet which reduces exposure to cancer-causing toxins.

The fire truck was purchased from the Bremen Fire Department

Argos Fire Protection Territory Board, President Randy Snead received the keys to the new addition, saying, “This is great, and we thank our volunteer association for raising funds and donating the truck.”

Dennis Mark, President of the Argos Firemen’s Inc., stated “We were able to purchase the truck from donations received at our pancake breakfasts, fair booth, and other donations received throughout the year.”

Fire officials say the truck provides space for dirty gear to be transported back to the station safely, allowing for a clean cab in the fire trucks.

Dennis added, “A clean cab will help minimize contamination of potentially cancer-causing toxins the firefighters are exposed to returning from a fire.”
