The Fort Drum Fire Department has welcomed a new fire truck, reports WWNY-TV.
The 2021 Pierce Saber engine features a 1,500 gallon-per-minute pump and six-person cab. Six apparatus were taken out of service in 2019 because of frame rot and structural issues.
The fire truck is expected to help prevent wear to the vehicles as the fire department will no longer need to bring two fire trucks to the scene.
Last year Fort Drum Fire and Emergency Service received a refurbished fire engine and expects to receive another new engine by March 2022.
