The Texarkana Texas fire department has a new tool. “Quint 5” cost nearly a half a million dollars. The fire engine performs five different functions. Fire officials say the thiry-even foot long fire engine will help them do their job in an effective and efficient manner. The truck was christened and sprayed down with water from the old fire truck. A medical call came in and fire fighters took off in the new fire engine. A second fire engine like this one will be put into service soon.
