The City of Montgomery, Ala., Fire/Rescue Department expects to save more than $2 million by refurbishing two ladder trucks and three pumper trucks, WSFA reported.
The department has completed work on the two ladder trucks, and has scheduled the refurbishing of the three pumper trucks for later this year.
The schedule is a way to buy time until the city can afford new trucks. Refurbishing the trucks could extend their use for 10 more years. A typical fire truck can stay in a city's fleet for about 20 years.
