Tam Valley invites brand-new engine to Southern Marin fire fleet

A row of children, some in firefighter gear, squared off with a brand new 35,000-pound fire truck on Saturday early morning, awaiting the signal to charge. & #x 201c; All right, & #x 201d; said Adam Vollmer, fire engineer of the Southern Marin Fire Security District. & #x 201c; I & #x 2019; m going to searching for everyone to help me push. & #x 201d; Kid of all ages and their families joined Southern Marin firefighters in inviting Engine 4 to the fleet, pushing the truck backwards into the Tam Valley area firehouse to end the ceremonial tradition. & #x 201c; The fire service is really steeped in tradition, & #x 201d; Chief Chris Tubbs said.
