Stafford’s fire and rescue department has received approval to purchase a new $1.3 million piece of equipment.
They will replace an 18-year-old heavy rescue stationed at Falmouth Volunteer Fire Department, a truck that has lasted eight years longer than originally anticipated, with a new heavy rescue truck.
It is expected to take nine months for the unit to be constructed. Atlantic Emergency Services of Manassas has been chosen to build the new apparatus.
In addition to the heavy rescue, the department also has budgeted for the purchase of new ambulances.
