FALL RIVER, Mass. — The Fall River Fire Department recently received a state-of-the-art drying cabinet for its Flint Reney/Eastwood Fire Station, donated by locally based equipment manufacturer American Dryer Corp. (ADC).
The specialized cabinet called the EcoDry ADFG is designed for the drying of firefighter turnout gear, critical to the safety of first responders.
The turnout gear is built to withstand heat and fire, says Fall River Fire Chief Paul Ford. Once the heavy insulated and tear-proof fabric gets wet, it can take days to fully dry.
