Special thanks to all the Firefighters in Wisconsin and Nicaragua who serve their communities to the best of their abilities.
In Managua Nicaragua, 2010, the Asociación Civil Cuerpo de Bombero Voluntarios de Nicaragua, under the leadership of Comandante Jaime Delgado, dedicated this Pierce fire truck from Wisconsin in memory of Sherin Bowen.
Sherin gave it her all to help improve lives in Nicaragua, she passed
away unexpectedly after a fatal accident in Managua.
As with anything in use, over the years issues with hydraulics for the truck ladder surfaced, among other maintenance challenges. The situation wasn't looking so good when we saw the truck sitting last year, although they were confident to get it running again.
Any Fire Departments in Wisconsin up for sponsoring a tire?
Recently, we received this video, the truck is once again back on the road and in service.

All is well thanks to some good Nicaraguan mechanics! Amazing perseverance.
