Emergency response in the city of Kingston is being beefed up with the addition of a new fire and rescue truck.
Fire Chief Willie Gordon said they invested $15,000 into the 2003 Chevrolet Duramax that once belonged to the Roane County Rescue Squad.
“They had bought it from somewhere, but they never put it in service,” Gordon said. “The truck was white.”
It’s now red and black and equipped with the necessary tools to respond to automobile accidents.
