Rimbey has an addition to its firefighting fleet.

Rimbey has an addition to its firefighting fleet.

The newest fire truck has replaced a 1986 truck, said Chief John Weisgerber.

The truck cost approximately $310,000 and has been in the works for the department over a little over a year.

“It’s a nice addition to the department,” said Weisgerber. “It’s got a couple of new things on the unit,” including LED lighting.

The department is pleased with the way it functions, but will be taking some time to train on the unit. It’ll take some time to figure out what all the buttons do and where they are, said Weisgerber.

The truck was built by Rocky Mountain Phoenix in Red Deer.
