Graham Purchases New Fire Truck

The city of Graham decided at a city council meeting Thursday evening to purchase a new fire truck.

Graham will be spending more than $300,000 on a new fire truck. The reason the city decided to purchase a new truck is due to an older truck in the fleet having to be retired because it had become old and worn down.

Because fire trucks have to be a special order to make, it will take between seven and eight months for the new fire truck to be completed and ready to use.

Graham's fire department services not only the city of Graham, but also helps out when a fire breaks out in Young county. The fire department also helped out years ago when fire devastated parts of Possum Kingdom lake.
