According to a report from WDHN, the Dothan (AL) Fire Department (DFD) welcomed the newest addition to its motor fleet Tuesday morning.
The DFD already features eight front-line fire trucks. However, there’s an expiration date on how long they can remain in service. Every 10 years, the DFD must replace its front-line trucks to meet federal firefighting standards.
DFD Chief Larry Williams said the department has some of the highest rankings of any department in Alabama, and this new apparatus helps that effort.
Williams also said the DFD will continue to strive for excellence in both its equipment and training.
