Crockett welcomes new fire truck

After three years, the Crockett fire department can finally enjoy the newest member of its fleet.

Engine 6 has been a three year process and after retiring their old engine two years ago. The department was in desperate need for a new one. The new truck is ready to go and comes with newer technology.

The truck will also help out the city's ISO insurance rating. The rating is currently a 5, but the department wants to get to a 4. Getting to a 4 would mean a significant drop in the premium the department pays for insurance.

"The ISO is going to get us credit for this truck," Crockett Fire Chief John NAgerstein said. "Not only do we have cabs, but we will also get several credits because this truck has foam capabilities and our other trucks did not have foam capabilities."

The newest truck will be replacing the ladder truck as the primary vehicle which will also help city insurance rates.

And being the only full time department in Houston county, other communities will also be able to benefit from the new addition.
