Imnahm  tl  track When the Susanville Fire Department's bright red fire truck cruises down the street, Lassen County residents will be looking at work completed by inmates in the Vocational Body Shop at the California Correctional Center. Instructor Tim Adler said approximately 15 inmates worked on the 1940 fire truck, taking most of it down to bare metal and completely restor- ing it. The fire truck was out at the prison for eight months. Adler said the most impor- tant thing in such a restora- tion was "having a good foun- dation" and that's why so much of the truck was stripped down to bare metal. At current shop prices of $40 to $50 per hour, Adler estimat- ed the labor cost on the restoration would be between $20,000 and $25,000. He said the inmates put in about 500 hours working on the fire truck, which is about one-quarter of the hours an employee would work in a year. Adler said the inmates worked on the fire truck on and off between other projects. Susanvilte Fire Chief Steve Rose said firemen over the years had drilled a number of holes into the truck's body for mounting a variety of things such as turn signals. The chief said that slowed down the restoration process.
