After nearly seven months of waiting, the Brudenell, Lyndoch and Raglan Fire Department has its new truck.

The truck was unveiled Wednesday night by Fire Chief Jordan Genrick, who says the truck can hold nearly twice as much water.

Money for the truck was raised by fundraisers at community events, as well as budgeted for by the fire department through reserves each year. Genrick says the community rallied around the truck to make it possible.

The truck is a 2019 Freightliner that was originally scheduled to be delivered in early fall, but Genrick says the BLR Fire Department was thrilled to get it even earlier.
