Waldron City Volunteer Fire Department took possession of a new pumper truck on Wednesday, July 26, 2017. This truck will become pumper one and is a 2017 Freightliner truck with a Rosenbauer firetruck body. The Waldron City Council approved purchase of the truck in the spring of 2017.
The new truck enables the city to remain in compliance with Insurance Services Organization (ISO) regulations for fire departments. The ISO determines insurance rates for businesses and homes.
The purchase of the truck will save the citizens of Waldron money on their in insurances rates by preventing insurance rates from rising.
