Marblehead approved funding to raise $9.25 million to purchase a new fire truck and to finance a library renovation project, reports Wicked Local.
The Marblehead Fire Department can now purchase a new $750,000 fire truck. The new fire truck will replace Engine 1, a 2006 Pierce Pumper truck. The new fire truck is the same as Engine 2, a 2017 Enforcer Pierce Pumper truck.
The new pumper truck will feature a back-up camera, direction lights and, resting atop the apparatus, a 3.6 kilowatt generator. The truck holds 500 gallons and can pump 1,500 gallons per minute.
