The Tri-County (IL) Fire Department, Plymouth, recently acquired a new 2021 F550 Crew Cab Brush/Rescue truck, reports mcdonoughvoice.com. The new truck was acquired from the Alexis Fire Equipment Company at a cost of $160,000.
The truck, for which the department has been saving for years, seats five firefighters as opposed to its predecessor’s three. The previous unit, an F350, has been sold to the Gladstone Fire Department.
The new truck transports the same amount of water as the previous unit. But it also has room for extrication gear.
