Electric apparatus: Is this really the wave of the future?

There's a lot to unpack when it comes to whether the fire service will eventually embrace electric apparatus

In this episode of "What's YOUR Problem?" Deputy Chief Billy Goldfeder digs into a hot topic: electric apparatus. Here's the question:

I feel like I can’t escape discussions about electric apparatus and how they are the “wave of the future.” I don’t want to be a hater here, but I can’t imagine this becoming a reality. It seems too risky to go down a misguided road like this all because people think they are better for the environment."
