The Britt Fire Department will be upgrading their fleet with the funds they received. A 1986 1-ton Chevrolet pickup, currently on load from the Iowa DNR, will be upgraded to a safer, newer chassis. In addition, the new truck will also have a few other upgrades, said Britt Fire Chief Jon Swenson.
“We would [sic] like to upgrade to an aluminum flatbed that would allow for more storage and help make the truck more efficient,” he said. “We also need to upgrade the light bars and lights to all LED to make the environment safer for firefighters.” In addition, the new truck will also have a quad-cab and air conditioning.
