Volunteer Firefighters Get Their First New Engine

by Ramonica R. Jones

The Huntington Volunteer Fire Department has its first new fire truck in almost 60 years. The shiny red engine cost $165,000, but the department only had to come up with ten percent of the money. The rest came from a FEMA grant.

The department now has six vehicles. The other five are either used or hand-me-down trucks.

The firefighters held several fundraisers to help pay for the new engine. It'll mainly be used to put out home and vehicle fires.
