Blooming Prairie (MN) Replacing Fire Apparatus with Cheaper Pumper

With its ladder truck no longer fully functional, the Blooming Prairie Fire Department decided to replace the vehicle with a new pumper truck, reports SouthernMinn.com.

The Blooming Prairie City Council approved the purchase of a pumper for a maximum amount of roughly $490,000. Funding will come from the agency’s annual contracts with townships the department serves.

Deciding to buy a new pumper is wanting to not end up in the same place it found itself after that purchase — with an older piece of equipment that requires more maintenance.
