Members of the Matewan Volunteer Fire Department welcomed their new 2020 Spartan pumper truck, reports Williamson Daily News.

The pumper truck has a 1,000-gallon-capacity tank and the capability of pumping 1,250 gallons of water per minute. The truck is on a Freightliner 108SD chassis with a Cummins L9 400-horsepower motor and it has a 30-gallon foam cell and a FoamPro 2001 delivery system.

The truck was recently purchased by the department from Johnson’s Emergency Vehicle Solutions for $287,000; it will be paid for in $5,700 quarterly payments that will come from the department’s $12,000 quarterly stipend from the state.
