The City of Jasper Fire Department’s 'The Beast' was given an overhaul, at no charge, by fourteen businesses. It was transformed into a showpiece instead of an extreme conditions rescue vehicle. Spearheaded as a 'give back' by Michael Piantedosi of GA Mtn Customs, it took 275 work hours in 30 days to complete the project. There was an unveiling ceremony on April 1, 2013 at GA Mtn Customs on Turner Road.
'The Beast' is a 1985 K5 Chevrolet Blazer, donated five years ago by the Pickens Sheriff’s Office to JFD for indefinite use. There were some minor electrical repairs needed as part of the transformation. The entire project was 100% donation.
Jasper Fire Chief Steve Roper said 'The Beast' will now be used for public relations at their Public Safety Days for the community and schools. Below is a list of all the contributors.
