The Whitehall fire department has upgraded to a new version of the 'jaws of life.' They've had the new equipment for a little more than a month. The fire department bought the new hydraulic rescue tool while they were in the process of preparing to buy a new fire truck. Whitehall firefighters said they decided to upgrade some new equipment as well. The new jaws of life are battery-operated and will save minutes. Whitehall firefighters said it took more time to get the old equipment up because it wasn't battery powered.
