Marietta City Council is moving forward on replacement gear for the city fire department. “Ten years is all they’re allowed to wear their turnout gear,” explained Fire Chief C.W. Durham Tuesday. Durham approached council’s Police and Fire Committee Tuesday to request support for the $27,890 purchase. “It’s actually below our projected estimate for the budget this year,” Durham told council. “We projected $36,000 for 12 sets so this request will be a savings.” For $2,789 per set of gear including helmets, gloves and hoods with a 10-year warranty, the request for 10 sets saw the support of all council members present.
