The Terre Haute Fire Department in Indiana debuted a brand new fire truck. The 2019 Pierce is nearly five feet shorter than the department’s other truck, the 2006 KME.
The shorter truck will help the fire department get around town easier, but will still be able to carry the same amount of water and equipment as their other vehicles.
Fire Chief Jeff Fisher said the department’s KME truck had struck other vehicles on occasions when crews were racing to arrive on scene, but the new 2019 Pierce would be easier to maneuver in traffic at high speeds.
