According to a report from News8000, the Onalaska (WI) Fire Department (OFD) has added a new truck to its fleet after more than two years of planning. It will be the first-out truck to home and business fires.
The new addition will help provide resources as Onalaska continues to grow.
OFD Chief Troy Gudie says the truck’s big advantage is its maneuverability with the single axle. Also, its top-mount ladder allows the crew a quick setup. It can deliver as much as 1,000 gallons of water per minute.
OFD members will train with the truck over the next three weeks before it is put into service.
