Fire chief recommends selling 1982 fire truck
WILLMAR -- Willmar Chief Marv Calvin is recommending City Council members agree to sell the department's 1982 Ford Luverne pumper because the truck is rarely used and is no longer a required piece of equipment.
The number of fire calls at which Engine No. 5252 has been used has decreased during the past 10 years from 90 calls in 2000 to 1 call in 2008. During a recent three-year period, the truck was used 6 times in 2005, once in 2006 and 3 times in 2007.
