Local 2455 Members,
Ford recently issued a safety recall notice pertaining to carbon monoxide/exhaust issues with Ford Explorers, specifically Police Interceptor Utility vehicles model years 2016-2017. Local 2455 Executive Board members are aware that the U.S. Border Patrol has Ford Explorers in their fleet and felt that it was important to bring up this safety recall notice concern to Laredo Sector management.
Laredo Sector management has advised Local 2455 that we do not have any Police Interceptor vehicles in our fleet, nor have they received any safety recall notices pertaining to the Ford Explorers in our fleet.
However, if a driver detects an exhaust odor inside the cabin or believe their vehicle is experiencing an issue, they should bring their vehicle to the nearest LRT vehicle maintenance facility and advise a Vehicle Officer or Mechanic so that it may be taken to the Ford dealership for inspection as a precautionary measure.
We would like to thank Chief Jason Owens and Deputy Chief Joel Martinez for their continued support!
President, Local 2455
