The Billings (MT) Fire Department is getting three new pumpers over the next few weeks, reports kulr8.com.
Crews are installing equipment in the new apparatus, though supply chain issues have hampered the process.
One pumper is $680,000, and officials say the department will receive a discount on the third truck with this order.
They were paid for with money already in the budget, and the public safety mill levy funds won’t be available until July. Officials note that they’re working to use that money to create mobile response units and hire more crew.
