A new fire truck comes to the rescue. After using a rescue truck that was more than 20 years old and unreliable, the Cambridge Fire Department now has a new heavy rescue vehicle. The new truck is 34 feet long, 11 feet tall and has plenty of room for all rescue equipment. It also has generators to run electricity, an observation deck and four, 500-watt halogen lamps to help light any emergency situation. Because the new truck carries all the tools, firefighters don’t have to call back to the station to bring extra equipment to the scene, thereby saving time during a emergency situation. Although it’s fully functional and ready to go, it still needs to be broken in. The Chassis cost 194-thousand dollars.
