The Bullhead City Fire Department is getting new apparatus. The fire district’s governing board voted Thursday morning to approve the purchases of a ladder truck, five new fire engines and two ambulances. All but the ambulances will be bought with money from a $16.7 million bond package approved by fire district voters in November. Interim fire chief Patrick Moore said department staff decided to deviate a little from the original plan, in part because of available savings, and in part as the best way to boost the BHCFD’s fleet. The initial plan, Moore said, was to refurbish two engines and buy a new ladder truck. Instead, the board went with a recommendation to buy and refurbish a 2008 Seagrave platform engine, at a cost of $544,000, and buy five new engines. Moore said a new ladder truck would cost “well over a million dollars.”
