Newport Fire Department Gets New Tanker

Although the Newport Fire Department had their hands full with the morning's calls in Plymouth, they found time to celebrate, as a new addition to their fleet arrived today.
At almost ten feet tall, with the capacity to hold 2,500 gallons of water, tanker 694 comes as the result of a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Newport Fire Chief Jeff Chretien says this was the fourth time they applied for such a grant, and it was much-needed.
However, upon the tanker's arrival, firefighters realized the garage was too small to properly fit the vehcile. They are now busy brainstorming ways to accommodate this massive addition to the station.
