The Farmington Fire Rescue Department has welcomed a 2021 pumper truck that has already gone on its first call, reports Daily Bulldog.
Voters had approved the purchase last fall which will replace a 2002 model. The new Engine 1 can hold 750 gallons of water and can pump at a rate of 1,500 gallons per minute. The truck cost approximately $806,000 and was made by Pierce Manufacturing.
The fire truck has a silver bell with an inscription for the late Capt. Michael Bell who perished while fighting the 2019 LEAP explosion. The bell was kept a surprise to most of the department.
