Our 2nd Communications Van
Modified 1983 Chevrolet Busette


The second Communications Van, a modified 1983 Chevrolet Busette, was purchased with funds donated by the community including a $17,000.00 donation by Wendell Robie. The vehicle was delivered to the Placer County Office of Emergency Services on July 1st, 1983. Since it's activation it had been carefully maintained and kept well equipped by the Communications Unit. Over the years the Van logged countless hours and miles in serving the citizens of Placer County and the State of California, including missions to Yosemite, Mt. Shasta and the Sierra Buttes. The van was retired from service in 2007.
