Talladega gets new fire truck

The Talladega Fire Department added a new engine to its fleet last week. According to fire Chief Danny Warwick, the 2015 model pumper truck was built to the department’s specifications. It produces up to 1,250 gallons of water per minute with a 1,000 gallon tank capacity. “The new pumper enhances our ability to extinguish fires by providing over 2,000 gallons of water at the scene,” Warwick said. “We pledge our gratitude to the City Council (members), who were influential in allocating capital for this endeavor.” The new truck cost $380,825, according to city records, and was built by Emergency Equipment Professionals of Pelham. It arrived Friday and is now fully outfitted and ready.
