Members of the Department gathered for the “Push In” ceremony where they gathered around new engine 9 to push the new firetruck into its new station along Devine Street where it will be housed. Thursday afternoon’s ceremony helped usher the new vehicle into its service in the community.

City Councilman Moe Baddurah and Richland County Councilwoman Allison Terracio were in attendance along with members of the community and fire crew members who put a little sweat equity into pushing the truck into it’s new space at the station.
