        We professionally clean, repair, alter and inspect turnouts. We've done it for 13 years and work closely with the major manufacturers. We have a video on how to inspect your turnouts at home or at the department to determine if you need to have them repaired. This is not a substitute for an advanced inspection. Those should be performed by a third party such as ourselves to divert liability away from you or the department. See those videos here:

        http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SstxaUYIjmMfor the liners (very important)

        Many times the liner will wear much faster than the shell so check those carefully. Check out our website at http://www.freds2therescue.com . We offer free quotes before work will begin if you wish and 72 hour turnaround on washing and inspections. Repairs and alterations, around 5 working days.
