Beckley Fire Department dedicates new truck

Posted: Updated:

In Beckley on Monday a new fire truck was dedicated and two new firemen were inducted.

Beckley Fire Chief Billie Trump told 59News the new ride will better ensure the safety of the community for many years to come.

Trump shared us everything the new truck has to offer.

"If you look at the drive ability of the truck, there's anti lock brakes that make it easier to drive to a call. There's airbags and interlock systems to make sure the firefighters are belted in," he said.

The new truck costs just over a half a million dollars.

Money was raised through a fire levy.
