When the car arrived at City Hall, it was tilted to the ground, then with some assistance from Chief Miller, rolled into a parking spot.

Then with Mayor Keith Snyder, chamber board president Don Peasley, chamber director Andi Hake and a host of firefighters present, Miller graciously accepted the keys.

Miller said the car will be used as the chamber desired, for an extrication exercise. However, the fire department plans to take it a step further and do the extrication as a demonstration for students of Lincoln Community High School. The extrication will serve to help show the students the consequences of impaired or distracted driving.

Therefore, we can safely say that though the special car is nearing its demise, it is doing so for a very worthy cause.

The picture above is one we just had to put in for "giggles and grins." Everyone had a good laugh at firefighter Ben who crawled on top of the car and posed like a supermodel. Good-natured fun is one of the things that helps these men "keep it real" when their daily duties have the potential to put their lives in danger.
