KINGMAN ­ Kingman Fire Department has new fire truck that fights fires in an unconventional way. The KFD will use the miniature vehicle, Engine Co. 1/2, throughout the Kingman area for public education activities, local parades and other events.

Without the support and assistance of the businesses and people involved, this project would not have been possible, according to a release from KFD.

Grants from the local Wal-Mart Community Involvement Team for the fire prevention education program were used

to purchase the conversion kit to transform a golf cart into a fire truck, and R&R Body Shop prepped and painted the truck.

KFD will use the miniature fire truck for public education activities and special events, including parades. Dunton & Dunton Dream Machines donated a trailer to transport the Engine Co. 1/2 to and from events.

The miniature fire truck project was a long-time dream of the fire prevention staff and ideas from old fire trucks played a large part in the finished project. Working in the evenings and on weekends the fire prevention staff started getting the little fire truck into shape. After a few months of hard work the truck was completed and named.
