Kearney Volunteer Fire Department adds new rescue truck to its fleet

The new truck is 35½ feet long and 10½ feet tall, making it three feet longer than the now-retired 2000 rescue truck. The new truck gives firefighters six more feet, or 50 percent more storage space for rope, building and confined space rescue equipment, which was being stored in a trailer. The new rescue truck was jointly purchased by the City of Kearney and the Suburban Fire Protection District No. 1 for $590,000. The old truck was sold to a fire truck broker in Pennsylvania for $75,000. One of the biggest benefits to the new truck, Rich said, is that firefighters could customize the placement of its equipment.
