NEW FIRE TRUCK —




 

 

Jenkins Police Chief Adam Swindall, Jenkins Mayor G.C. Kincer (center) and Jenkins Administrator Todd DePriest were photographed in front of a new $263,000 pumper truck the city has purchased. The custom cab truck, also seen at left, is equipped with self-contained breathing apparatuses so at least five firefi ghters can have air packs on when they arrive at a scene to fight a fire. The truck can haul 1,000 gallons of water. It also has a phone system and a generator. The purchase of the fire truck was approved by the Jenkins City Council and ordered last May. DePriest said a 1995 pumper truck was traded in and the payments were kept the same, keeping everything within budget. DePriest said the new fire truck was necessary to stay up to date.
