Warren’s rescue fire truck was damaged recently by road conditions, reports Macomb Daily.
A fire official said a shock tower and steering control were damaged by alleged poor road conditions. The official also believes a previous break to one of the shock towers in June was caused by the exceptionally rough railroad tracks. Any repairs to rail come under the Federal Railroad Administration guidelines and may not be completed by the city. The stretch of road will need to be torn up and rebuilt.
Repairs were made to the truck over the weekend and were done under warranty. The parts and repairs would have cost between $15,000 and $20,000. The truck was purchased a year and a half ago for close to $700,000.
