September 4, 2013

NEWPORT CITY – Fire Chief Jamie LeClair will ask the city council Monday evening to hold a special bond vote to buy a new heavy rescue truck. The city purchased the existing truck, a used 1987 Pierce, 10 years ago. It carries equipment and firefighters to scenes. However, the truck is aging, is not reliable, and needs extensive repairs. The truck has 226,000 miles and 107,000 hours of driving on it. If it were a traditional over-the-road vehicle, it would have over a million miles, LeClair said.
