VIDEO: Firefighters in Stevens Point have a new tool that will help them improve their speed and efficiency while fighting fires. After saving for years the department was able to add a brand new fire engine to their fleet. It's been more than 30 years since the Stevens Point Fire Department got a new fire engine and with a new engine and new technology there came a big learning curve. "We had to learn all the new technology and make sure that our motor pump operators were ready to go so when the alarm goes off there is no delay," explained Assistant Fire Chief JB Moody. The brand new Pierce fire engine is going to make firefighters jobs easier, safer and more efficient. It's a streamlined version with a bigger and better engine. Along with more room for equipment, like the Genius equipment they just recently received thanks to a grant.
