DENISON, Texas — Set just inside the bay doors of Denison's Central Fire Station is a new fire truck awaiting its next call. The new pumper truck, which arrived in mid-December, is replacing a 17-year-old truck that will now be used by the department as a reserve engine.

"We have a replacement program where we have to replace an engine every so many years," Denison Fire Chief Gordon Weger said. He said the engine that is being replaced has reached the end of its useful life for the city.
