The City of Lexington has donated a 1975 Mack Fire Pumper Truck to Davidson County Community College to be used with the fire and rescue program.
According to a letter from Beck Daley, associate dean of the School of Health, Wellness and Public Safety, the students in the fire protection programs and the continuing education program would benefit from having the apparatus to learn how to drive an emergency vehicle and to get hands-on experience in learning how to operate and maintain a pumper.
The Lexington Fire Department recently removed the Mack Pumper from service due to the purchase of a 2012 Smeal Quint fire tuck. The Mack Pumper truck was in service for over 37 years and has a market value of $2,500.
