Jay officials checked out the Fire Rescue Department’s new Freightliner/E-One pumper, reports Sun Journal.

The tandem tanker truck was priced at $446,531 in May 2019, but after trade-in of two older trucks and receiving a $5,000 credit for paying for the truck upfront, the bottom line was estimated at $276,531.

The new Engine 1 holds 3,000 gallons of water, compared to the combined 2,800 gallons the other two trucks could carry. The truck has a five-person cab and has a bigger pump that can handle 2,000 gallons of water per minute, compared to the 1,250 gallons the other trucks can pump.
