I've seen the truck, and I don't think it has "rescue" anywhere on it. I'm sure they use it to go and check on the schools when the streets are flooded. Probably to get a game plan ready should a school actually get flooded. We wouldn't want the kids to NOT to go to school, then people would complain that the ISD didn't prepare......

If the street are flooded (which we all know happens in DP), then I'm guessing they need a taller vehicle than the standard heigth truck. Just a guess though.

it does say high water rescue and they use it everyday. it even has a snorkel exhaust coming out of the fender. not for high water. that's what the fire department is for. as far as I know, the schools don't flood. safest place for the students. they have two other trucks that have a lift kit and custom wheels. explain that. it makes no sense.

Here, I did the work for you.
According to the district website, the next board meeting is 10/21. They are open to the public. Why don't you go to the source and ask them why they need the truck? Just a thought.
