The Wichita City Council approved nearly $3 million to upgrade fire equipment, reports ksn.com.
The alerting systems to notify crews about an emergency are outdated. The other challenge is the equipment is different between the stations. The council also approved new equipment, including one truck, two engines, a tractor, trailer, and two wildland units.
Also approved is another $500,000 to update hoses, thermal imaging cameras, and other rescue tools.
