$1.1 Million Electric Fire Apparatus for Menlo Park (CA) Vetoed

Menlo Park Fire Protection District was considering purchasing an all-electric fire truck that would have cost $1.1 million, but it was vetoed in a three-to-two vote, reports Business Insider.

The truck — created as a rescue vehicle with pumps, tanks, and recovery equipment — was designed by Austria-based Rosenbauer Group and was created with the intention of tackling shifts in firefighting, the environment, and ergonomics.

The Menlo Park Fire Protection District was planning on reserving one of 10 pre-production slots for 2021.
