Two New Fire Apparatus in Davenport (IA)

The fire department hopes two new engines are part of a long line of replacements, reports WQAD 8.

The two trucks cost the city more than half a million dollars. Each truck is custom made to handle the different kinds of weather that come to the Quad Cities.

The two old trucks are 13 years old, each with more than 150,000 miles. The National Fire Protection Association recommends replacing engines around every 15 years.
