Olcott Fire Company unveils new truck

The Olcott Fire Company's new $160,000 fire engine will be shown off to the general public for the first time at 11 a.m. Saturday at the fire hall, 1691 Lockport-Olcott Road.

Chief Stephen Miller said the fire company received a $130,000 state grant through the efforts of State Sen. Robert G. Ortt, R-North Tonawanda. The volunteer company provided the rest of the cost by selling a 15-year-old truck.

The new vehicle is "a heavy-duty mini-rescue with a 200-gallon tank," Miller said. "The new truck will be more versatile and be used for emergency medical services, advanced life support, marine rescue and brush and rubbish fires."
