The current truck was refurbished in the late 90s and no amount of money spent on another refurbishment can ever change the fact that this truck is too old, too small and too dangerous to operate. The truck has served the residents of Newton well for thirty years and now deserves a life of retirement from the fire service. This truck will make a great snow plow or sander for some highway department somewhere. The new truck has been carefully designed and will meet the challenges of the fire service for the next twenty-five years.
Any resident who wishes to discuss this truck replacement in greater detail or to visually inspect the truck we would like to replace can contact me via email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
