Citizens Fire Company will place a new Pierce engine into service in the coming weeks, reports The Journal.

The fire department posted on its Facebook, “Citizens Fire Company Apparatus Committee members recently flew out to Pierce Manufacturing in Appleton, Wisconsin for the final inspection of our new Engine. After a two day inspection, minor corrections will be made and then arrangements will be made for delivery. The members and officers of Citizens Fire Company are very proud of our new Engine, which will be designated as Engine 2. Once delivered, hose and other equipment will be added to get it ready to be placed in service.”

The engine cost $650,000 and will replace a 2014 rescue engine. Drivers are receiving training on the engine and how to work the pump panel.
