Fire department receives new fire truck

Great news for the city of Susanville’s Fire Department as it finally accepted delivery of a brand new 107 foot Pierce Quint fire truck.

The fire department showed off the new ladder and pumper truck to city council members and the public at the council’s Wednesday, Aug 18 meeting.

The ladder truck is substantially funded by an $800,000 grant and local fire mitigation funds.
