The Wilson’s Mills Fire Department has purchased a 2004 Peirce Dash 100-foot ladder truck that was previously owned by the Cary Fire Department, reports The Johnston County Report.
The pandemic impacted the truck’s arrival. Fire officials expect all equipment to be installed on the truck in the next few weeks. It should be operational and responding to calls the end of October 2021.
The fire truck will be housed at the main fire station. Plans are in the works to add a third fire station. Wilson’s Mills Fire currently has an insurance rating of 3.
