Hastings (NE) Fire and Rescue to Hold Ceremony for New Apparatus

Hastings (NE) Fire and Rescue is hosting a ceremony for its new apparatus, Quint 1, at Station 1—1313 N. Hastings Ave.—today at 4 p.m., reports ksnblocal.com.

Community members will also get a chance to explore the station via an open house.

The purchase was approved as part of last year’s budget, at a cost of $993,000 including equipment. Wisconsin-based Pierce Manufacturing began production of the apparatus in March, and it was delivered to Hastings on July 14.

Ladder 1 and Engine 1 will be retired during the ceremony. In addition, the report says, six firefighters were recently sworn in as Fire Apparatus Operators, and a badge-pinning ceremony will be held during the event.
