VIDEO: Nothing shines like a new fire truck -- except maybe two new fire trucks. With record growth and tourism, the city of Gulf Shores is investing in the safety of its residents and visitors. The new Pierce engine and ladder truck are now in service. They came with a significant price tag of $2 million dollars, an investment the city felt it was time to make. “With the amount of vacationers we had in town this past summer, we don’t look for that to decrease in the future so it really drives how quickly and how safely we get to scene, again, for the wellbeing of our firefighters and the wellbeing of our residents,” said Gulf Shores Fire Rescue Chief of Staff Melvin Shepard.
