The city of Pawtucket has worked out an agreement with the city’s fire union to bring back the sixth fire engine that was originally replaced by a rescue. The city’s fire department will now have four rescues, six engines, and two ladders throughout the city’s fire stations. “Public safety for our residents is a top priority, especially as Pawtucket and the Blackstone Valley have been without a hospital, emergency room, or necessary associated services for well over two years,” said Mayor Don Grebien in a statement Back in September 2019, the city had originally replaced Engine 3 (which is the engine returning) with a new ambulance. The department went from three rescues and six engines to four rescues and five engines back in September.
