BATON ROUGE - The fire department unveiled several new pieces of equipment Monday morning to help keep residents of the Capital City safe.

With the peak winter fire season on the approach, the Baton Rouge Fire Department now has three new state-of-the-art trucks to add to their arsenal of safety equipment.

The new trucks were built from the ground up by the experienced Louisiana technicians over at the Ferrara Fire Apparatus Facility in nearby Holden.

According to Fire Chief Ed Smith, the new equipment will give BRFD firefighters an edge when they battle the inevitable blazes that come with colder Louisiana months.

Fire Chief Smith said the brand new trucks should also improve emergency response time, which in turn can help improve the overall departmental fire rating.
