According to the Williamsburg-Yorktown Daily, the James City County Board of Supervisors recently approved two contracts that would allow for the purchase of two new fire trucks and a new ambulance. The new ambulance, after aid from the Virginia Department of Health, will cost about $220,000 and the fire trucks will cost about $1,270,000. The National Fire Protection Association mandates that fire trucks can only be used for 15 years and be on reserve for five. “Just like your own personal vehicle, they wear out,” said Fire Chief Tal Luton in an interview.
