Officials say the department ordered vehicles at the beginning of 2021, but they didn’t arrive until December, which, of course, made things hectic.

Delayed parts has been another challenge, as officials say some trucks have a 90- to 120-day lead time on parts. However, the shortage is not expected to impact department response time, according to the report.
