The Plymouth Fire Department has unveiled its brand-new truck at a “wet-down” dedication ceremony, reports WickedLocal.com.

Town officials joined firefighters for the ceremony. Funding for the apparatus was approved at a 2019 Town Meeting and it replaces the department’s 2004 Pierce Dash pumper.

This 2021 E-One Cyclone 2 features a 1,500-gallon-per-minute pump; a 1,000-gallon water tank; a built-in 10 kilowatt hydraulic generator and light tower; and rescue tools including the Jaws of Life.

The engine features modern highway safety construction for additional protection for firefighters and has a smaller wheelbase that allows the engine to be more maneuverable.
