Normal – Two new fire trucks can store everything from camping gear to power tools to two-way radios to rescue ropes. Normal Fire Department dedicated engine and technical rescue vehicle Saturday, June 21. The technical rescue truck carries a memorial plaque dedicated to Firefighter Jeff Hilton, who helped design it before his unexpected death last year. “We plan on having these trucks in service for at least 20 years,” Chief Mick Humer said. “We put our most prized possessions in that equipment-our people. We feel very safe in this equipment.” The 2014 Pierce Saber, called Engine 13, can carry five firefighters and has a 1,500 gallon-per-minute pump with an integrated foam system, extrication tools and other equipment. This was purchased from Global Emergency Products and the sales representative Larry Graves, who is a retired firefighter from Pontiac, assisted with the design of the truck. “We tried to focus on safety and tried to keep most of the equipment they use a lot as close to the ground as possible,” Graves said.
