The Mahoning County Career and Technical Center has a new addition to the program in a fire truck, which the school bought from the city of North Canton.
This fire truck is an upgrade from the previous truck. It will be used for hands-on training exercises for students and some community fire departments.
“I’m a hands-on learner. I’m not good with using the textbook, and being able just to go from the classroom to our lab makes it a lot more fun and easier for me to learn,” said Natalie Susor, a Jackson Milton senior.
The school says the fire truck will be a classroom training tool for another ten to twelve years. It has to be tested every year to meet National Fire Protection Association standards.
