Town In Need Of New Fire Truck With A Warranty

ladder.jpgWest Newbury Massachusetts officials have proclaimed that the town needs a new fire truck. The curent truck has numerous problems, most notably, the ladder on the Fire Department’s 28 year old Seagrave truck doesn’t always deploy, and when it does deply its weight limit isn’t even able to hold an average sized fireman wearing his gear.  Also, officials say the truck has considerable corrosion which affects several safety devices that are disabled.  It is said that the list goes on and on noting that repair costs are to be considerable. It would not make sense to put a ton of money into a 28 year-old truck.

The truck was taken out of service several months ago the town is now relying on aid from several area towns but the situation is dire. 

Residents are being asked to approve the funds for a new truck at a Town Meeting in February.  In the meanwhile, they hope to line up a new truck.  This way if voters approve the funding it can be delivered right away.

The truck they are interested in is a 95-foot tower truck with a price tag of $785,000.  Once purchased the vehicle would also carry a limited warranty. To have continuous warranty coverage the town now needs to look into an auto warranty program that would cover an emergency use vehicle.  These commercial type plans are available through several aftermarket auto warranty programs.
