Firefighters from Bowling Green (OH) recently performed a traditional push-in ceremony of a new $750,000 rescue pumper, according to a story published by the BG Independent News.

The new rescue pumper was designed by city firefighters to meet the needs of the Bowling Green Fire Department, the report said, noting that it was outfitted to meet virtually every conceivable need.

The 35-foot fire truck carries life support equipment, foam, extrication equipment and lifting equipment and has space for four bulletproof vests, according to the news report.

Until the economic downturn in 2008, the city had purchased a new apparatus every five years, but that stopped, according to the report which added the new apparatus will be around for about 25 years.
