Brookville Volunteer Fire Company One Step Closer to New Ladder Truck

BROOKVILLE, Pa. (EYT) — The Brookville Volunteer Fire Company is one big step closer to having a new ladder truck.

Monday evening at the firehouse, Ron Pearsall, President of the Brookville Volunteer Fire Club, presented a $400,000 to BVFC Chief Dave Miller.

Miller didn’t get to hold on to the check for very long though, handing it to Bob Lynn of Glick Fire Equipment, which is building the new truck.

The truck will be built to exact specifications desired by the BVFC.

Glick is located in Zelienople.

The total cost is about $845,000, according to Miller. The Fire Company is financing about $170,000, which will include all the equipment that the new ladder truck needs.

Brookville Borough recently approved freeing up the $55,000 it had committed to the purchase of the truck.

Other donations will help pay the remaining costs.

The new truck will replace Tower 2-18. It is nearly 30 years old and recently needed repairs for it to pass inspection and be considered safe for use.

Delivery of the truck should be early spring 2019.
