The Newberry Fire Department will be hosting a push-in ceremony for the new Quint 28 that will be replacing a 1999 Southern Coach firetruck.
The event will be held at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 19 at the Newberry Fire Department (310 NW 250th St.). The ceremony will be open to the public.
The new Quint 28 is a 2023 E-One Typhoon custom chassis quint truck. The quintuple combination pumper or quint for short, derives its name from the five functions the truck can provide- pump, water tank, fire hose, aerial device, and ladders.
The firetruck is expected to serve the citizens and visitors of Newberry for the next 20 years.
