1. When did you actually see this ambulance run? As I said before, this ambulance has NOT been running in several months.
2. What good is a "fire boat" in Bensalem? First of all, if you are familiar with the operations on the Delaware River in Bensalem you would understand the need for such a vessel. This includes the expanded facilities that were presented by the Mayor which were included in the vessel specifications. Union Fire Co. IS responsible for for everything north of Philadelphia within the Delaware River. It is part of the local, state and federal response for the Delaware River. This is not a patrol unit. However, it can be used to locate drowning victims, evidence, suppress fire, handle hazardous spills and fires on the river and shore line.
3. As for your question on the upkeep costs. The cost of maintenance and operation was part of the planning for the project. The same as when the township purchases a command vehicle, motorcycles, trailers and equipment for the canine dogs.
To find out more about this project you should contact the Union Fire Company. Or, you can contact Director of Public Safety Harran. The Department of Public Safety has been made aware of this project since it began in early 2006. I spoke with officials of the Union Fire Company and obtained some information for you. Feel free to contact them yourself and find out what is really happening.
