Whiteville firefighters welcomed a new addition to the fire station on Columbus Street Thursday. A new Pierce fire engine was unveiled Thursday morning. When the new truck is in service, it will replace the 32-year-old Engine 3, which is no longer fit for service. The truck was driven to Whiteville from the dealer in Appleton, Wisconsin. Chief David Yergeau said it’s standard procedure to drive a new apparatus home, rather than shipping the equipment. Yergeau has been seeking approval from the city council for a replacement truck for several years. The city will have invested roughly $725,000-$730,000 in truck and associated equipment. The engine will have no impact on the city’s ISO rating, Yergeau said. “This keeps the current rating from dropping,” Yergeau said.
