Dunn County is preparing for the new fire truck

The West Dunn Fire District in Dunn County is getting ready to welcome its newest member, and she is a beauty.

The department has been posting pictures on its Facebook of its new fire truck.

The truck is an Enforcer Chassis Pumper Tanker Combo, and it cost more than $500,000 dollars.

It can hold up to  2,500 gallons of water and release more than 1,200 gallons per minute.

It can also hold 20 gallons of foam.

The department currently has 13 water apparatuses in its fleet, but they felt it was time to upgrade the fleet with a more modern and efficient one.

“It’s harder and harder to get the volunteers, so we want to make sure that this truck is going to have enough water and other resources. . . modern technology. . . so we can take care of it(fire) in a quicker more timely fashion with fewer people running it,” said Ryan Hauk, West Dunn Fire chief.

Hauk said the truck is still being worked on,  and they hope to have it by next week.
