A new rescue vehicle, with an ability to respond more quickly to Allen County emergencies, will likely be added during 2019.
Allen County commissioners were told the current model, purchased in 1999 for about $100,000, wasnt as fast or as technologically well-equipped as one that could be purchased today. Cost may run to $300,000.
Enbridge pipeline and EDP Renewables, owner of the wind farm being constructed, will be approached about grants to help purchase the vehicle. Other grant opportunities will be investigated.
