LFR says new fire engines arriving this month

LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Lincoln Fire & Rescue announced that seven new fire engines will arrive in the city this month. They will replace current, aging engines that service different areas of Lincoln.

"Coming soon. To a fire station near you!" - Lincoln Fire & Rescue in a social media post, Tuesday afternoon.

LFR posted a picture of one of the new engines to social media on Tuesday afternoon. LFR said the rigs will arrive the weeks of Dec. 9, Dec. 16, and Dec. 23rd, although the exact dates are unclear.

LFR says that some of the current engines in better shape that are being replaced will be kept in reserve, and replace its current fleet of reserve engines.

The seven new engines were all part of an approved budget plan the Lincoln City Council authorized back in August of 2018.
