Heavy Duty Rescues


Lafayette Township Fire Protection District

Floyds Knob, IN

Model DFC1173R24


Lafayette protects an area northwest of Louisville along the I-265 northern loop. This rescue replaces a rescue manufactured by Hackney that has served the district well for over 16 years. The durability and functionality prompted the department to merely enhance its capabilities but stay with a manufacturer that had a proven track record for those sixteen years.
