FFD's new engine/rescue truck has many features


The Farmington Fire Department's newest engine finally arrived last week, after a long journey through the snow from the Pierce Manufacturing plant in Appleton, Wis. It's not in service just yet, but firefighters expect to have it in use later this month.

The reason Engine 22 isn't being used yet is because there are so many new features on the truck, firefighters have to go through a few training sessions just to get familiar with the new rig.
