Over the last year we have been working to refurb Forestry 7172, our 1978 CJ7. While many Jefferson County departments utilize pickup trucks as field units Fern Creek went a different route. Our district has more rural and wooded areas than most other department. Having the Jeep allows easier access these remote places. It’s short wheel base and powerful drive train allows 72 to go places the other field units can’t. 72 has been part of our fleet for over 40 years, and hopefully with these upgrades we can get 40 more!
