Although it might not arrive for almost a year, a new fire truck is in the works for the Village of Osceola. The village’s board of trustees approved the purchase Tuesday, Oct. 9. The combined pumper and aerial truck, which will replace the fire department’s 1972 truck, will be built to specifications by Osceola-based Custom Fire Apparatus and finished within 300 days, according to the contract. The truck will have capacity to carry 900 to 1,000 gallons of water. That’s enough to put out a car or brush fire on its own, according to Fire Chief Don Stark. Hooked up to a water source, the pump will be capable of supplying 1,500 gallons per minute. The truck will also have a 65-foot ladder for aerial fire and rescue work.
