Richard Wolfington Jr., President of Wolfington Body Company stated, “We are excited about our relationship with Fogmaker North America and we are 100% committed to educating school districts on the benefits of the fire suppression system on all buses. Going forward, we plan on using the Fogmaker fire suppression system as a standard practice for our fleet of school buses.”
