The Rockingham (NC) Fire Department recently took delivery of Engine 3, a $475,750 E-ONE truck, reports richmondobserver.com.
City officials say the truck was purchased via funds from the American Rescue Plan.
The engine was built as a demo model and was about 40% complete when the department got the ball rolling on the purchase this past summer, the report says.
The apparatus will replace old Engine 3, a 1989 Mack, and serve as a pumper-tanker. The predecessor will be retired from the 12-vehicle fleet. Officials expect it to be ready for service by early December, following some finishing touches.
