The Selah Fire Department is getting it's first new fire truck in 15 years. Selah Fire Chief Gary Hanna said their budget has been tight so they haven't been able to get new equipment, until now. "It's like anything with age things wear out, they start becoming undependable," Hanna said. "More and more breakdowns, so having new, modern equipment will help take the pressure of that." He said Fire District 2, Selah citizens and a utility tax helped pay for the more than $300,000 truck. Hanna said this allows the department to replace their old truck and have a spare for when one of the trucks has to undergo maintenance. This way, they will have a backup and won't be without a truck, which is something the department has never had before.
