State-of-the-art truck ready to fight fires


CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- The Cambridge Fire Department's new tanker truck was delivered to Firefighters on Monday.

The new truck, capable of hauling 2,700 gallons of water, was purchased at a cost of $287,000 as part of the department's fire contract with Cambridge Township, negotiated back in 2012. The modern, computerized vehicle replaces an older truck that is now headed to the Lore City Volunteer Fire Department.

Cambridge Fire Chief Jeff Deeks says his firefighters now will receive training to familiarize themselves with some of the details and characteristics of the new truck, which was built by Wisconsin-based U.S. Tanker Fire Apparatus Company. The Chief also said the truck is in service now and will be very useful in the outlying areas that his department serves:

With the new tanker in service, Deeks says his department is now working on a federal grant to replace the city's ladder truck, which is more than 30 years old
