When There's Smoke on the Mountain or Clouds in the Air, K-Best News Is There!

The Big Spring Fire Department held a “Push-In” Service yesterday afternoon at Fire Station 4. The ceremony involved a “wet-down,” which is a long-standing tradition in the fire service. The wet-down is a ritual celebrated by many fire departments in the United States in which firefighters commission a new fire apparatus by anointing it with water sprayed from the retiring pumper’s tank water.


Big Spring Fire Chief Craig Ferguson told KBest News that the "Push-In" ceremony is really important to the BSFD and the community. 


"We love that the [community] comes out to see what we're doing here and see that we support them and, more importantly, that they support us," said Chief Ferguson. 


"It's a tradition that we hope carries on for many, many years when we get new fire apparatuses. It's just really imporant that the community sees what we do here."


Chief Ferguson went on to advise that this will be the first brand new fire truck that Station 4 has had in the last 10-15 years. The previous truck at fire station 4 will be transferred to fire station 2. The old fire truck from station 2 will be retired.
