CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — About a year ago, Chattanooga Fire Department officials asked firefighters what features they'd want on their firetrucks if they could have anything they liked.
After listening to and paring down suggestions, the department this year debuted four new squad trucks — and ordered a fifth — that can be used to fight fires, perform extrications and respond to hazardous materials scenes and urban search-and-rescues.
