The fact that it's a black Dodge Ram pickup, and that its police lights are barely visible when not in operation, gets a few second glances. The old squad car, a Dodge Durango, still will be used by other Kimball Police officers. The even older squad car (an actual car, not an SUV or pickup), may or may not be retired; it has more than 159,000 hard miles on it.

Kimball Fire Dept. trains drivers In a small, volunteer fire department there's no room for specializa- tion. Everyone is cross-trained to do every task. That includes driving any of the fire and rescue vehicles. Kimball received a grant to cover all of the $3,500 cost for computerized driving training that was com- pleted over three days last week for all members of the department. Above, Rose Borman is at the seat in the computerized fire truck sim- ulator from St. Cloud Technical College. Instructor Scott Dingmann guided each driver, one at a time, through a number of challenges in- cluding equipment breakdown, pedestrian traffic, weather problems, and inattentive drivers in other vehicles. Another component of the training was watching a safety video. Staff photo by Jean Doran Matua.
