Ameren, MO, Donates $1M Apparatus to St. Louis Fire Department

The apparatus is used to battle underground fires.

Ameren, Mo., recently donated a $1 million, state-of-the-art truck to the St. Louis (MO) Fire Department, reports kmov.com. The new apparatus took about 10 months to design and then another year to build.

The apparatus is used to battle underground fires; it sprays CO2 under manhole covers, quickly extinguishing electrical fires. It can also hook up to another truck to spray foam on chemical fires.

“Although ceremony was this morning, the truck has already been used in two underground fires downtown and at the Affton chemical plant fire back in April,” local resident Mark Griffin wrote on Twitter.
