The Hermantown fire chief’s official car looks better thanks to Auto Care Collision Center. The Hermantown based collision repair center recently donated its services to repaint the chief’s service vehicle.
Fire Chief Mike Marshall had originally contacted Auto Care for a quote for repainting a de-commissioned police vehicle they had received to match the current fire department fleet colors. When owner Dennis Adamski heard it was for the fire department, he decided to donate the service.
“The fire department does so much for our community,” Adamski said. “This was the least we could do to give back to the people that help to keep our friends and neighbors safe. We’re glad our services could help out such a valuable resource.”
The vehicle is used to aid in the response time of the fire chief to emergency calls, including medical, fires, and all other calls for assistance within the community. The chief’s car is equipped with medical equipment, as well as other first responder items to assist the member of the fire department in rendering care to victims of emergency calls.
For the project, Auto Care’s technicians repainted the vehicle to reflect the fire department’s color scheme. Auto Care utilizes green waterborne paint technology, which is safer for both the technician and the environment.
“We’re thankful for Auto Care’s generosity,” said Marshall. “We operate on such a tight budget where every dollar counts. Thanks to Auto Care, we can make sure that more of our dollars are going toward safety services vs. maintenance — and that’s good for everybody.”
“The car looks fantastic,” continued Marshall. “They did a wonderful job and with the new color it will make the vehicle so much easier to see in emergency situations.”
