The Monroe Fire Department will add four new pumpers to their fleet. The trucks will be unveiled on Thursday, January 21, 2021 at 12:30 p.m. in the Monroe Civic Center Arena.
The new trucks were constructed by Louisiana-based Ferrara Fire Apparatus located in Holden, LA. at a cost of $2,078,812.00. Funding for the trucks is derived from a ten (10) year tax renewal designed for capital expenditure projects within the fire department.
The trucks will be housed at Station 2 (Public Safety Center), Station 5 (Breard St. upon reopening), Station 8 (Richwood Rd # 1) and Station 9 (Cypress Point).
Chief Terry Williams says, “we are very excited to add the new trucks to our fleet. They will assist us for many years in providing first class emergency services to the citizens of the City of Monroe and the many visitors we receive on a daily basis. I would like to thank the citizens in the City of Monroe for their continued support of the Monroe Fire Department and assure them that investing in the Monroe Fire Department is an investment in the services we provide each and every day.”
