The latest addition to the Rome-Floyd County Fire Department's fleet is expected to hit the streets Friday. Fire Chief Troy Brock showed off the custom-designed Pierce heavy rescue pump truck Monday to the Rome City Commission. "This is a piece of history," Brock said, noting that it's the first time since 1983 the department ordered anything other than Sutphen fire apparatus. It's also the launch of a new color scheme — red with a black top and gold lettering — and the first time they've bought a truck loaded with new equipment. Brad Roberson, the department's chief of operations, said the $520,000 truck plus extras came out to about $560,000.
