In a Thursday, April 7, 2016 photo, Mendon Fire Chief Ray Olsen talks about the departments' 1966 American LaFrance firetruck, in Mendon, Utah. The truck, which was purchased new in 1966 by Utah State University, is still routinely used by the department. Fire chiefs in rural Cache Valley say when someone calls 911, they always manage to send a team to help, but the harsh reality is they don’t have enough volunteers to handle daytime calls.
