FORT PAYNE, Ala. — On Tuesday, the Fort Payne Fire Department took possession of a new heavy rescue (Rescue-1). 

"We will use this vehicle in hazardous material calls, vehicle extractions, high-angle rope rescue, trench rescue, confined space rescue, and all structural fires," said Fort Payne Fire Chief Ron Saferite. "As a support truck, it comes fully equipped with self contained breathing apparatuses (SCBA). It is a neutral-aid response vehicle for technical rescues in all of DeKalb County." 

"I would like to thank the Fort Payne City Council and citizens for providing this vehicle to better serve them," Saferite concluded.
