According to Savannah Fire Rescue, the city has a plan in place to replace vehicles every 15 years. The vehicles that have been replaced will be put on “reserve status” and will be used as back-ups when other vehicles undergo maintenance.

Savannah Fire says firefighters are testing the new trucks to ensure all systems are working smoothly. They are expected to hit the roads next week.
