The South Area Fire Response District unveiled it's new $650,000 fire truck. It's meant to do the job of multiple rescue vehicles. It's the first new rig purchased since multiple fire departments merged to create the SAFER District. The truck was welcomed with a traditional "wet down" ceremony where the firefighters wet down the entire truck and then push it back into the garage. "It increases our safety out on the highways for example, instead of bringing 3 or 4 pieces of equipment out onto the busy highway, we have one piece of equipment that's less likely to be hit," said Bert Nitzke with the SAFER Fire Department. Firefighters spent more than 4 months designing the vehicle that they hope will last 30 years.
