ECRU – Fire Chief Phil Stokes is looking for a new fire truck.
Stokes addressed aldermen at the December board meeting and they gave him approval to find a suitable tanker truck in the price range of $50,000 or lower.
“Here in Ecru our class rating is an 8, and out of the city limits it’s a 10. We feel like our next move is to try to get a tanker truck to take care of our jurisdiction,” he said.
Staying up to date with guidelines set in place by the Fire Ratings Bureau is a priority with the fire department because class ratings have a direct impact on homeowners’ insurance rates for residents.
