Local Fire Department Gets New Truck

Posted:

GREEN VALLEY (WVVA)--- In times where local first responders are cutting back on spending, one local fire department is doing the opposite, they went out and bought a brand new truck.

The Green Valley/Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department has purchased a 2013 7400 International Fire Truck that is equipped with 4-wheel drive and an extended cab.

"This is a large truck, everyone calls it the beast," said Chief Dave Thompson of the Green Valley/Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department.

"We are just hoping that it can do what we need it to do for the community."

The 4-wheel drive will be a big asset for the department that has to deal with a lot of back roads in Mercer County.

"We are hoping it is going to be a real advantage to us in the past like I said we had to chain stuff we had to chain part of our trucks, leave other trucks unchained."

Tune in tonight on WVVA News at 11 to see the new truck and a full report from WVVA's Josh Frketic
