A fire engine will soon make the long journey from Yakima to Mexico. City leaders said the retired fire truck will be transported from the Yakima Fire Department to Yakima's sister city of Morelia in central Mexico, during the week of Dec. 3. The Yakima-Morelia Sister City Association (Y-MSCA) purchased the fire engine from the city of Yakima earlier this year. Fire Chief Aaron Markham said it is a great opportunity to have these partners who help support emergency services in Morelia. Yakima and Morelia have been sister cities for nearly 20 years after Yakima City Council passed a resolution in 1999. City leaders say the goal of the association is to promote mutual understanding and the sharing of cultural diversity between the two cities.
