SOUTHINGTON, Conn. — The Fire Department will be showing off its newest addition this evening. At 6 p.m., residents are invited to department headquarters, 310 N. Main St., for an open house at which they can get a close-up view of Engine 11, the newest truck in what Chief Harold Clark describes as an aging fleet.
"A lot of our vehicles are getting older," Clark said, referring to three fire trucks purchased in 1989. The last new engine-style truck was purchased in 1999. The engine pumper was produced by Sutphen Corp., an emergency services manufacturer in Ohio, and cost the town $530,000.
