A new arrival has made its way into town in the form of a brand new fire engine housed at the St. Paul Street Fire Station. According to North Smithfield Fire and Rescue Services Chief David Chartier, the $550,000 engine arrived the day before Thanksgiving to replace a 17-year-old engine previously based out of the St. Paul Street Station. The new arrival brings the town’s total fire engine fleet to three, with two frontline engines and the old engine kept on at St. Paul Street Station as a spare. “The truck that’s being replaced is close to 20 years old, so this really was a project that had already got rolling when I got here,” said Chartier, who took his post as chief in July.
