Smithville’s New Fire Truck Arrives

February 4, 2018
By: Dwayne Page

The City of Smithville has a new fire truck.

The new Pierce Impel PUC Rescue Pumper, which is a combination fire engine/rescue vehicle, arrived Friday evening in time for members of the Smithville Volunteer Fire Department to get their first look and inspection of it following the firefighter appreciation dinner downtown.

In January, 2017 the aldermen voted to spend $751,575 over a two-year period to purchase the new fire truck. It will replace the fire department’s oldest truck, a 1992 model, and a 20-year old rescue and service truck. The new vehicle will also come equipped with five air packs and other tools and equipment.

The city plans to eventually sell the 1992 truck along with the rescue truck and service truck.

In addition to the new truck, the fire department has three other fire trucks, a 1992 and 2001 model along with a 2012 ladder truck.
