Friends, officials and community members were also on-hand today as a 2017 KME 1,000 gallon Freightliner pulled into the parking lot of the fire company.
The new pumper/rescue firetruck, which cost about $325k,  replaces their 1997 Freightliner truck and can pump water at 1,500 gallons a minutes.
It also contains an abundant amount of storage space for their rescue equipment, to include their new electric tools. The tools cost around $30k.
Firefighters stressed the importance of supporting events at the fire company, as to help pay off the large loan.
Today’s event consisted of a pre-truck housing, blessing, and free food/refreshments to all who attended.
