The Idaho Falls Fire Department washed, pushed in and placed Engine 4 into service, reports Local News 8.

The fire department posted to Facebook, “Starting today, engine 4 will be one of our frontline response engines, replacing an older engine that met its 15-year life cycle and will go into reserve. Fire Chief Duane Nelson and Deputy Chief Jon Perry joined station 4 personnel as they washed, pushed in and placed engine 4 into service. Driver Levi McAffee was behind the wheel. The push-in ceremony is a tradition in the fire service. Back in the day, horse-drawn engines had to be pushed into the station. When water was transferred from an old horse-drawn engine to the new one, some of the water would splash onto the new one and have to be dried off.”
