Boone County Fire Dept. Maintenance of Vehicles

But most repairs to the apparatus's can be made at the fire stations so that the apparatus's would not have to be removed from there station.

Every 15 years the Boone County Fire Dept. replaces the apparatuses. Which this time is longer than other fire dept.'s that replace there apparatus every 7-10 years.

Fyi- Midway Fire Station has mostly all knew fire apparatus's at this station
because this is the newest station that has been built lately.
