The Echo Hose Hook & Ladder along with the rest of the Shelton Fire Department received new Scott-75 air packs

with 45-minute bottles as part of a federal government grant. These new Scott air packs will replace our current

Drager air packs which only have 30 minute bottles. These air packs will allow our firefighters to perform

firefighting duties longer and have the ability to be more inter operable with neighboring fire departments.
