Every year fire departments must have an equipment safety check done on their pumpers. As in the years past, one can find a "pool" of sorts at the fire hall where the test is being completed.

ACES (Appararus Compliance Equipment Safety) came out to Pine Bluffs to run the annual Pumper check with the Laramie County Fire District No. 5. These checks are necessary to ensure that the pumper trucks have the proper output needed to extinguish fires they're called out too. Luke Brooks and Bill Enoch with ACES said "As of my visit every pumper was within the standard. We start setting up at 7 a.m., and it has been a long day. The estimate time would be 3 p.m to finish everything up and pack it in for another day."

Many residents noticed the roads shut down in front of the fire hall for all of the day, but was needed to maintain correct pumper action and usage.
