The West Palm Beach Fire Department has bought four new fire engines, reports The Palm Beach Post.
Three of the fire engines were purchased for $674,745 each. A fourth was obtained through a lease. Four fire stations in the city will each get one of the new engines.
The city is working to allow members of the public to come see the new fire engines in the neighborhoods where they are being put into use.
The older trucks were requiring many repairs and were not diesel fuel efficient. The vehicles date as far back as 2008.
