For Sale: A Pierce fire engine which formerly served as Engine 101 with Whitney Fire, now as Reserve Engine 12. Boise Fire asking $35,000. See Idaho Statesman for legal ad and instructions.
Boise Fire Station 1 has closed bidding for improvements at Fire Station 1. The pavement, sidewalks, and apron will be redone. Details on the project can be obtained at http://cityofboise.org.
Station 14 has a new Pierce engine in its bay. Painted in the same colors as Boise Fire instead of the solid red the new engine's front looks like Engine 16. The former Pierce which was Engine 14 will become Reserve Engine 12 once the former reserve engine has been sold (see above).
A walking tour of Boise buidlinds that have sustained fires in Boise's past and a history of Boise's fires will occur on September 27 at 1215 hours. The tour is one hour. For more information, see http://boiseartsandhistory.org .
