(Festus) The Festus Fire Department will be ordering a new pumper truck soon. The City of Festus budgeted nearly one million dollars for the new truck. Festus Fire Chief Kevin Craemer says they need to replace the 21-year-old vehicle.
Chief Craemer says the department began the research for the new truck several months ago.
They are planning to order a Rosenbauer fire truck, and they hope to finalize the purchase later this month and have delivery of the new vehicle in late 2022.
