The Fort St. John fire department unveiled its new hazmat and command vehicle at city hall on Monday.
The vehicle was put into service this week and will be used as an incident command post for hazmat, technical rescue, and structure fire calls.
The vehicle is built with a camera mast and a real-time weather station to help guide firefighting tactics.
“We can run for days in this truck,” fire chief Darrell Blades said.
The vehicle was built and delivered by Spartan at a cost of $1.5 million. The city had budgeted $2.25 million.
