New Festus Fire Dept. Rescue Pumper Dedicated in Honor of Late Chief Kevin Cremer
(FESTUS)    The new Festus Fire Department rescue pumper #6614 is ready for action following its dedication Sunday night.  North Mill Street was blocked off in front of the firehouse for the ceremony in which the new engine was dedicated in honor of late Fire Chief Kevin Cremer.  Tonya Cremer, the widow of Chief Cremer commented to KJFF News about the emotional ceremony.

Moments before the ceremony, Festus Fire Chief Jeff Broombaugh said department personnel are excited to receive the rescue pumper.

The rescue pumper was recently delivered and was ordered by the city in 2021.  With a fireman behind the wheel and the rescue pumper in reverse, the final part of the dedication allowed children and adults accompanied by the new #6614’s  flashing emergency lights, to help fire department personnel ceremoniously roll the engine
into its firehouse bay.
