Hempfield Fire Department has added a vehicle to the fleet that pumps 2,000 gallons of water per minute, reports Tribune Review.
Fire officials said that the truck cost about $550,000.
Months ago, the township added two Sutphen SL75 Mid-Mount Aerial Ladder trucks, which can fight fires in residential, commercial and industrial buildings. The trucks, which cost about $860,000 each, replaced two older vehicles at both stations.
The trucks reflect changes made to Hempfield’s fire service over the past year. In March 2019, leaders started work to combine the township’s 12 fire stations under one department.
