One of Enid (OK) Fire Department’s (EFD) two new apparatus officially went into service last week, reports enidnews.com. To celebrate, Mayor George Pankonin and his wife, Melody, took a ride in the pumper as it was driven from Station 1 to its new home at Station 3.
In early July, EFD received the two new Pierce pumpers, which the department spent a few months designing. They cost $638,000 each.
The other apparatus will remain at Station 1, and the hope is that both pumpers will provide about 25 to 30 years of service for the community.
