4 Guys Welcomes New Engineer

May 29, 2015

Meyersdale, PA - 4 Guys Fire Trucks would like to take the time to welcome our newest employee, Cody Wedge. Cody graduated from The University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown in early 2015 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and Technology. Learning the ins and outs of building fire apparatus can be cumbersome at times, but with the help of the others in the engineering department, Cody is doing very well. We have no doubt that he will do great things for the company.

When he's not learning everything he possibly can remember about fire trucks, Cody enjoys camping, fishing, playing soccer, and spending time with his family. He is excited to start this job right out of college and looks forward to having a long lasting career here at 4 Guys Fire Trucks.
