The Zebulon Fire Department has two new firetrucks this week — a $1.7 million investment department leaders said was necessary to maintain safety and cost efficiency. The new trucks are an engine and a ladder truck. The engine is replacing a 22-year-old engine that has outlived its useful life of 20 years, Chief Chris Perry said. The ladder truck is replacing a 32-year-old model, which has also surpassed its useful life, according to Perry. The trucks were bought by the town of Zebulon with some financial assistance from the county. The ladder truck arrived last week, and the engine on Monday. After a period of training with the new trucks, they will go into service later this month. The replacements will reduce money spent on maintenance, will be more reliable and include better safety features than the older models, Perry said.
