EDISON, NJ – Early Tuesday morning the Edison Fire Department took receipt of its newest truck to join the aging fleet of fire trucks.

The truck was order a year ago from Campbell's Supply in South Brunswick before the recent DPW fire that destroyed two trucks that were in for routine maintenance and will replace a 1997 aerial fire truck.

"The new truck will enable the department to have an increase in water flow at fires and extra compartment space for more equipment,” Fire Chief Brian Latham stated.

Even though the fire truck is painted red, inside it has green technology with cleaner emissions, safety cameras around the truck and is capable of pumping water up to 2000 GPM.

The 1997 Seagrave it is replacing will become part reserve truck to backfill firehouses across Edison when a truck is out of service.

Edison Fire Station 2 at 1997 Rte 27 will house the new truck to round out the fire house.

On hand for the delivery of the new at the Edison Municipal Complex were Mayor Thomas Lankey and Councilmen Michael Lombardi and Alvaro Gomez and other municipal employees.
