Fire safety and response time will be improving for the Monroe Fire Department. On Wednesday they unveiled four new fire trucks.
Engines 102 and 105 along with Rescue Two and Tower Four were sprayed with water hoses from other trucks.
Mayor Jamie Mayo and the city council approved the $2.3 million dollar purchase.
Fire Chief Terry Williams says these trucks will replace some of the other ones that barely run, so they can better serve and protect the community.
“We have two pumpers which are your basic firefighter apparatus, one rescue unit and we have one elevated platform, this elevated platform is going to be basically the first of it’s kind at Monroe Fire Departments,” says Fire Chief Terry Williams.
