Peru Fire Department ready to replace old engine

Posted by wlpo on February 12, 2013

After 33 years a fire engine in the Peru Fire Department’s fleet is ready to be replaced.  The engine purchased in 1980 has recently had costly repairs.

Fire Chief Jeff King says it is time to replace it with something that better handles their needs.  He wants to get a new E1 pumper rescue truck estimated to cost $525,000.

The finance committee will next consider his recommendation.
