In a ceremony last Sunday, The Windham Fire Department blessed its new truck and the crew who will serve on her. The new fire truck is a 2016 Pierce Pumper truck that holds 1,000 gallons of water, 30 gallons of foam and has seating for five firefighters.
The new truck will replace a 1994 truck that will become a spare, reserve truck, replacing a 1981 truck. Fire trucks have an average life span between 20 and 25 years, according to fire chief Brent Libby.
The final cost for the truck was $437,000.
