Brooklyn Park (MN) to Buy New Fire Apparatus

Brooklyn Park’s Fire Department plans to purchase two new fire engines, with a total cost of $1.2 million, reports Hometownsource.com.

The custom-built, identical new trucks are expected to be simple, durable and safe and to serve as a template for the city’s truck replacement moving forward.

While the city planned to replace a fire engine in 2019, the department formed a working group to review the engines in the fleet and create a standardized design based on the department’s needs. Two trucks scheduled for replacement at a later date have advanced rust on their frame rails and a third-party consultant told the city that while they can temporarily remain in service, the trucks would eventually need replacement.
