Despite their financial issues, the city of Pawtucket is getting a new fire engine. It is
set to begin working in about ten days once all four department shifts undergo
training.

The engine costs $450,000, and has features the others do
not, including a special compartment for medicine and the Jaws of Life. The
truck will also carry tools such as rescue saws, stabilizers for tipped over vehicles,
cutting torches, etc, making this vehicle first choice for all major
emergencies.

It is set to begin working in about ten days once all four
department shifts undergo training. Training began on Monday in the McCoy
stadium parking lot, and will be completed on July 12th.
