In the 1970s the county gave five Hurst tools out to the five different fire companies. Mt. Bethel happenedto be selected to receive one of them. Since then the members have all been state certified in vehicle rescue training. Also we have purchased other rescue tools from Hurst to help in rescue, including three different size rams, another spreader and cutter, a new gas motor to be used as portable and an electric motor that is mounted in the rescue truck.

When we had an open house for the 1997 Pierce Dash Pumper to replace our 1967 Hahn pumper, we donated the 1967 Hahn truck to our sister company, North Bangor volunteer Fire Company.
