PHOTOS: Greeley Fire’s newest ride — a walk-in hazardous materials response truck — has been on nearly a year’s worth of calls involving hazardous materials, a number that approached 230 in 2023. Already, the hazmat team says, it has made everybody’s lives easier. The truck equipped with most — if not all — the bells and whistles carried a price tag of $710,000. But Greeley Fire Apparatus Project Manager Tim Logston said it was well worth the money. “That’s actually on the low end of what our vehicles cost, but we chose that truck for more than just financial reasons,” Logston said. “It’s going to meet the needs of the citizens and that team for 20 years.” The truck — equipped with five computer workstations, gas detectors, chlorine kits, chem sets, waste treatment equipment and much more — made its debut in April of last year.
