Lexington has invested over $5.3 million in new fire department equipment.
The new equipment will be sent to ten out of the 23 fire stations throughout the city.
Ten ambulances are set to be replaced, three of which are already on duty. Three of the new ambulances replace ones that have over 240,000 miles on them.
Lexington is also commissioning a new ambulance company, which means another crew will be hired. That crew is in training and is expected to graduate in November.
Two new ladder trucks and five new engines will be added to the fire department’s fleet.
