According to a report from WTOL, the Harris-Elmore Fire Department (HEFD) in Elmore, Ohio, recently received a new 2020 Custom Rescue Engine with help from an Ohio First Responder grant. Because of the grant, Harris Township only had to chip in around $108,000 for the new fire engine.
Despite the recent cold weather in the state, the HEFD held an open house on Sunday afternoon, February 14, at its station to unveil the latest addition to its fleet.
Officials expect the new rescue engine will be around to serve the community for at least 25 years.
The HEFD was established in 1885 and makes nearly 115 runs a year with 45 active members.
