Howard Fincher, deputy chief of Anderson Fire Department, left, Phil McNeal, Anderson Fire Department captain, Madeline Fire Protection District chief Bruce Skehan, Cal OES assistant fire chief Ken Hood and Office of Emergency Services Chief Eric Ewing stand before the 2004 fire engine recently donated to the Madeline Fire Protection District.

Tuesday, April 28, 2015 - With a recent donation, the Madeline Fire Protection District will have equipment to be better prepared for an emergency.
The Anderson Fire Department, in cooperation with Califonia Office of Emergency Services and Lassen County Office of Emergency Services, presented the Madeline Fire Protection District with a 2004 fire engine.

“This is a great start,” said Madeline chief Bruce Skehan. “This puts us in this millennium of equipment.”

Previously, the local fire district only had access to aging fire trucks from 1966 and 1967. Skehan added the trucks, due to their age, often took a while to warm up and not all of the functions worked.
