The new trucks will hold 2,000 gallons of water, that's double the amount the current ones hold. The fire chief says the upgrade could lower the department's protection rating. A lowered rating means cheaper property insurance for home owners in the fire district.
"We'll get with Insurance Services Office and get them to come in and reevaluate the district once we get these tankers put in service," said Michael Ryan, Fire Chief.
Chief Ryan expects the trucks to be delivered by May. They will cost a total of $380,000.
