Featured Delivery: Harwood Fire & Rescue

“This was the first experience we had with Command Fire Apparatus, and they not only lived up to but surpassed our expectations.”

Harwood Fire & Rescue is an all-volunteer fire and EMS department located in Harwood, North Dakota whose service dates to 1983. The small band of volunteers recently made a new addition to their fleet with the purchase of a new pumper tanker this fall.

The members went to Command Fire Apparatus for their purchase and selected a 2000 HME/Central States pumper tanker. “We worked with Jared and his crew at Command Fire Apparatus with the purchase of a 2000 HME Tanker pumper in the fall of 2021. This was the first experience we had with Command Fire Apparatus, and they not only lived up to but surpassed our expectations. I was pleased with the level of communication and the timeliness of getting back to us on decisions when coming to terms and requests that we made for this truck,” said Harwood Fire & Rescue Assistant Chief and President Brian Giere.

“The level of inspection they put this truck though and the details that they put into making sure this truck was exactly what we thought we were getting was very commendable,” add Assistant Chief Gere. “I would not hesitate to work with them again in the future. It was a very good experience from the beginning to the end.”
