Zachary, La (NBC33) — A new tool in Zachary will help keep you and your family safe.
Firefighters there have a new custom pumper truck. It'll store more water than normal fire trucks, and the pump is more powerful.
"We know that the city of Zachary is now better prepared to respond,” said Pat Forbes with the LA Office of Community Development. “They will be better prepared to recover."
"We have needed it for quite some time,” stated Zachary Fire Department Chief Danny Kimble. “Some of our trucks are getting old."
The city paid for the truck with federal grants received after Hurricanes Gustav and Ike.
