Colchester, CT, firefighters are on the cusp of getting five new apparatus after voters approved a $4.5 million bond issue, according to a report published by the CT Examiner.

On Tuesday, voters said yes to a plan to replace three engines, a tanker and a tower ladder, according to the report, that added three of the apparatus were built in the 1980s.

The money will be used to replace equipment with fractured frames, non-operational pumps and trucks that failed inspection.

A Colchester official told the newspaper some of the trucks in the fleet are not safe enough to be used in a parade.
