Burrell said the new fire engine is designated for the station being built in Signal Hill while the other two trucks will replace existing and dated ones. The department has already received three trucks, in addition to the latest ones, and is expecting three more shortly.
To be fair though, I will be honest and admit that we have seen more apparatus purchases with our new chief than we have seen with any other in years. Our fleet is slowly but surely being improved...so hats off to the chief for getting us the equipment that we need...not to mention securing extra funding for us in the middle of a fixed budget cycle.
