The insert has a rescue deck with basket stretcher.
The vehicle will be placed on a trailer with equipment for medical rescue, brush fires, and search and rescue.
The Union Hill Fire Department and Ambulance Corps participated again this year in the Michael Smith Parade of Lights, held on Satuday December 6 in the Village of Webster.
This year, the department won "Best Float" for their Santa Sleigh and Wreath entry.
The float was constructed under the direction of Crew Chief Charlie Harding, who was assisted by members of the department, and the Union Hill Explorer Post.
The sleigh and wreath will decorate the lawn at Station 1 thru the holidays.
