    It's  costly to fight fires, and fire engines do not come cheap, that's why some fire trucks remain in service for 20, 30 and more years.
    Now  two of the city's oldest fire trucks have been replaced with new fire pumpers that were designed by the fire department and city staff.
    They were on display today at Central Fire Station.
    Fire Chief Earl Foster says these new engines replace two of the city's oldest trucks which went into service in 1979 and 1985.
    The trucks  cost almost a half million dollars each.

"There's allot of computerized stuff on these trucks they have a bigger water tank they have a bigger pump they carry more hose, we'll just be able to our job more effectively with the new equipment", said WFFD Chief Earl Foster.
Chief Foster says the pumpers were only on display today,as of 4'oclock this afternoon firefighters were already putting them to use.
